2023-10-29 (Su) EWC_Cyberdeck Initial soldering

I soldered the encoders to the Adafruit quad-encoder boards. I had to use a lot of solder to secure the electrical contacts and the structural fasteners, but they were sturdy. I never used the mounting holes in the board because the encoders were mounted to the chassis, so those holes in the faceplate were vacant.
Components soldered in place

I also soldered the tactile switches to the prototyping board, but only to keep them secure. I added power and ground wires to the potentiometers and toggle switches. Soldering always takes longer than I expect.
