That was insane soldering. Got to learn that, just to say i can do it. I'm sure it harder then it looks. Just received a hakko 936 iron for 37 delivered and am keen to see the difference that it makes. This video reminds me that a little skill wouldn't go astray.

you mean it doesn't just work like that if you follow the instructions? that looked easy.....

I have learnt already that changing the tip on my soldering iron would probable help also.

Actually a pretty informative comic.
For those that want to do surface mount soldering I bookmarked this 1 a while ago and I'm not sure if i posted it. It's just about the best video i've seen on smd soldering.

Professional SMT Soldering: Hand Soldering Techniques - Surface Mount

Was wondering what was used at 1:39? is it some type of protective coating for the solder and board?


Never mind. I just realised that it is solder. I've never seen it in that form before.

Thats Solder Paste... Wonderful stuff if you have a soldering station with integrated hot air gun, makes SMD soldering very easy!
