I've put myself down for the group buy, I hope that's ok, as this is my first post over here, although I have been reading these forums for a little while, and I'm an active head-fier. Anyway, I really like the look of the project and am looking forward to trying it even though I havn't done any SMD for a very very long time (I can barely even remember), I'm fairly confident that if I take my time it won't be an issue, the packages don't seem to be the hardest ones to solder anyway. I'm certainly impressed by the uptake this project has and look forward to having a piece of it.

Chhers,
Chris

With a decent size tip, a good quality soldering iron and some 63/37 or 60/40 solder you won't even need to use flux.

The flux contained in a good quality 63/37 or 60/40 solder is more than you need for perfect results every time and it makes cleaning the board afterwards a lot easier.

Stay away from the crap that is leadfree solder and everything gets a lot easier.

hmm I use good leaded solder (cardas quad or kester) and have decent technique, its not 100% necessary, but I use flux just because its more reliable to get smooth shiny joints, particularly if drag soldering, you should scrub and clean the board well regardless.

We are not making recommendations to experienced SMD solderers here, so I think flux is definitely recommended and its recommended by all the pros as well.

best not add another point of indecision, we are trying to make this as simple as possible. as a bonus it also helps when positioning the chip before tacking a couple of pins down because its quite viscous

I had already problem with lead free solder. Had to desolder capacitor from pcb (my first and the only build) and ..uh.. never again It was nightmare.

I don't know if there has already been a direct link to this video, and my apologies if it's redundant. I haven't found anything better.

I guess to add to the YouTube instructional mania here is my favorite one, it's by an IPC certified trainer, he demonstrates a number of methods and shows ideal joints and all of them are quite amazing --> SMT Hand Soldering Techniques
