- Assorted sized tips for the soldering iron
- Water Soluble Solder Flux in Pen Form
- Safety Goggles
- A lighted Magnifying Glass
- 2 Screwdrivers

The Starter Kit costs $99.00 and its release coincides with the launch of www.solderbynumbers.com.
“It takes two things to build an electronic circuit – the ability to solder the components and the ability to take an electronic schematic and transfer the schematic to a real circuit board,” said Neal Greenberg, SchmartBoard VP of marketing. “SchmartBoard has made these issues easy which opens up electronics to a wider audience than previously possible.”
With SchmartBoard prototyping technology, anyone can solder any type of SMT electronic component.
· SchmartSolder makes it possible for anyone to hand solder through hole components.
· Solder By numbers tells you where to solder them onto the SchmartBoards to create your circuits.
“Solder By Numbers is to circuit building what “Paint By Numbers” is to art”, said Greenberg. “If a circuit is in a Solder By Numbers format, and you have the right tools, virtually anyone can build the circuit. We plan to have hundreds of SBN circuits on the SolderByNumbers website available soon.”
