The PNW Section doubled down in November with a second meeting, a basic soldering workshop. Led by PNW committeeman Rick Chinn (Uneeda Audio), participants were invited to bring their own tools - or not, and be instructed on basic microphone cable building, with connectors and cable provided free courtesy of an anonymous donor. Some 10 AES members and 12 nons attended at the Shoreline Community College music building in Shoreline, WA.
Rick presented a tutorial on soldering basics, such as the essentials on wire and cable, connectors, tools and solder metallurgy. A video camera showed closeups of his live demos. Several equipped stations were available for persons without their own tools. By the end of the evening, participants had a working XLR cable and a copy of the book, "The Artful Solderer" by Lee TIngler.
