Re: SMD Soldering Aid

I remember that and have used that method a few times.  I picked up a music wire one with a fishing sinker on it later and use it more now.  A touch of bees wax helps reduce the flight of the SMD and does no harm to the build.  Didn't someone write a music composition about the "Flight of the SMD"?

Greetings,

One time, during a 4 DIM Buildathon, Rex Harper, W1REX, used a toothpick held by vice grips to hold down SMDs for soldering.
