soldering microswitch

Just curious, is there someone on here you guys could recommend for soldering a microswitch? I am planning on building a DM3 with a homebrew box mag. I want to use a Virtue LED board and have it situated in the tupperware container that I'm using as the box mag, then have the microswitch mounted on a dummy board in the frame (either UL frame or regular DM3 frame). I have never soldered such small connections before and I'm worried that I might mess it up. Ideally it would have plugs for easier disassembly. The eye wires would need to be lengthened but I think I can handle that part.

If there's anyone on here who's really good at soldering tiny connections, let me know and we can set something up.

Thanks,

Drew

search your local area for a old school electronics repair shop that does tv's and audio gear. they will be more than qualified to help you out. if you have a tech school near by and they have a electronics program go talk to an instructor and sometimes they may help you out.

most of the cell phone/computer repair shops dont solder unless your near new yorks rossman.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will try asking at the store where I plan to buy the soldering iron

Its hard to discern exactly what you need done,
But soldering is quite easy, though it can be intimidating.
the trick is knowing to use the right tip, use flux, and monitor your temps.
