Re: Any advice

Serious ?
Do you have a wife and how does she feel about the odor?

The small amount you solder in slot cars should not put you in danger IMO.

Re: Any advice

I have worked at soldering electronic boards for years IF you have a good filter and it draws the fumes away from you ,there should be no problems , remember to change filters every few chassis...Have fun and don't drop the Iron in you lap
