Re: SMD soldering aids for small boards

Bob,

 

First SMD rule (Jim N5IB has touched on this) is no carpet.  There is a definite repelling force between tweezers and an SMD part.  This force will launch the part somewhere across your floor.  Chances are, it will never to be seen again if there is carpet. ;-}

 

Have fun and enjoy the build, SMD or not.

Very neat ideas - all of them. I haven't had to tackle a SMD board yet but no doubt that will be coming up soon and these all look like good ideas.
