Recommended Posts

I am look for anyone who can help me with pictures and terms of solder joints good and bad. I have to pass a test at work and need to be able to study the pictures before taking it again. I flunked the first time >:( We are studying surface mount and through hole solder joint evaluation.
Thanks,

Wow, I found that very helpfull and interesting, it gave me some insight on surface mount sodering, especially with the toaster oven. Does anyone know if the stuff re-liquifies if it is put back in an oven, ex- resodering?

I am not sure, but I think it does'nt because the oven is not hot enough. You can always try using soldering-glue.

Use just enough solder to make a dropplet effect. Use more solder as opposed to less. Use a flux and a hot iron. This get me by. Some say that too much solder creates parasitic inductance and it's true. It makes for a great filtering but of course that is just what the ear hears.

The Weller model#WES51 iron that I use is ESD safe. It is reasonably priced but not cheap, and I use it all the time with no ESD issues.
