[* icon_note] To start, let's solder a large component held to a circuit board with [link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Through-hole|thru-hole] solder pads.
[* black] A capacitor was already removed from the two solder pads. Each pad was heated while the capacitor was pulled away from the board.
[* icon_reminder] Notice how the solder holes are completely covered with solder. Opening these holes -- toso the capacitor lead can be pushed through -- will greatly simplify installation.
