Help with circuit bending links

I know there are a few readers are into circuit bending so I thought I’d ask a favour of you. Could anyone recommend some good links for forums / groups where I can get advice and help without feeling like too much of a newbie?

Also, if anyone can suggest any good soldering irons for a beginner that would be really helpful.



  1. Massively late response…sorry.. for inspiration, schematics and the latest on the US bending scene massive collection of links well worth spending some time on home of Reed Ghazala the father of bending…with a good tutorial section based forum.. pretty friendly and definately into sharing bends/experience rather than keeping secrets!On a soldering score I would buy a relatively cheap want a small one that you hold like a pen not a soldering gun)around 15-25 watt with replaceable tips..I have a pretty cheap amdek one in my collection that I would reccomend as a beginners iron. General tips for soldering are available all over the web…but I would reccomend getting something like an old computer mother board and practice soldering wires to different bits of it so that you get good and accurate on a none essential bit of kit.
