8 year olds can handle it. At that age I was in my uncle's basement
soldering components on his Heathkit HERO-1 robot. Helped him build an
Apple II clone, too (the PINEAPPLE kit).
I don't mind him fooling around with the electric whoozits and whatnot, but
if he wants to put a plexi-glass window on his PC he's gonna have to wait
until he buys his own.
