Jig to help soldering SMD components

Posted 31st October 2013 at 10:12 PM by tauro0221

Hi,
I was searching for a jig that to help me soldering SMD components to the board but unsuccessfully was unable to find one. Specially when your are an older person with checking hands like me. So I decided if you do not find it built it. Checking my junk box found some parts that allowed me to came out with this SMD holding down jig. It worked so good for me that I decided to share it with the diyAudio members.

To fabricate it I used a 1 x 8 inches aluminum strip and bent it like a square with one leg side cut out. Drilled a hole at the end of one of the leg and installed a 2 inches screw thru the hole and used one spring and holding it with a nut to applied pressure from the tip of the screw to the other side leg of the square. I think that a picture it is better than words specially when you are not a technical writer like me.
Attached it is a picture showing the final SMD soldering holding jig.
