SMD soldering practical session
The Club’s June lecture hosted Graham, VK2GRA’s follow-up lecture on surface mount soldering. This comprised of some short revision from his last lecture on the topic, before demonstrating how to remove different IC packages, and a few pointers on the different package types. Afterwards, members were able to try their hand at SMT soldering for a few hours.
Club members discovered that surface mount based soldering is an achievable target, and like many things in life, only improves with practice. Never be afraid to try SMT soldering for yourself on some old boards.
