Like a lot of people I have been looking for stuff to do while staying at home. One of the things I wanted to get better at was soldering surface mount components. I found several practice kits on AliExpress and the LED fidget spinner is one of them. And to do something different I decided to make a timelapse of me putting it together. The instructions consist of a website with picture and some information in what might be mandarin. The picture are clear enough to figure out how to assemble the kit. The only thing I didn’t notice beforehand was that there where three different colours of LEDs provided. You will see in my video that when I first test the fidget spinner I only have two colours and after final assembly I have three.
I hope to do more of these type of kits in the future because I enjoy putting things together. I would rate this Kit an 8/10.
