I tend to stick little feet on the bottom so that it grips and doesn't slide around and scratch desk surfaces etc.

Like these ones:
3M Bumpon SJ 5012 Stick on Feet, 28pcs/sheet | eBay

I think many of the people in the Aussies GB now have their kits, but are still waiting on the front panels, which were due to ship this week. The GB is getting sorted slowly, but still some issues to resolve... sadly
yeah, only 700 or so owing by BF to the GB now..... dont quote me on that, its a guestimate without latest info

RS said not to use it in the construction notes of the blog. Would it be okay to use it and carefully clean the board afterwards? I don't want to have to wait to order some Kester 44 or the like. It seems mouser is out of the recommended solder as well. Opinions? Thanks everyone. I can't wait to hear this!!!
If you are careful and have much experience I don't see it being a big issue, just make sure you don't bridge or short anything.

Funny thing is a looked at what I am using as I am finishing and its good ole' RS 60/40 .32. I just wish I hadn't bought these hakko china knockoff iron tips, they fit but they just aren't as good as the OEM. At least I got rid of the china hakko clone, hated that thing.

Great, that makes me feel better. Do you clean the board with alcohol after you are done soldering?

If you are using resin core solder (and you better be...) then you don't really need to clean up after, unless it's for aesthetics. If you plan on cleaning the board, do it before you install the switches and input/output jacks, as the residue from cleaning may gunk them up and cause issues later..

Thanks Mr. Slim. It is definitely Rosin core. Okay, I am going to give it a go. I will post pictures when complete!

I have one of these: circuitspecialist 1A or something. What was the issue with yours?

It warped to the point to where the tip would barely screw on and be off at an angle. That was a different brand that yours,, it looked identical to a my Hako 936 except the iron was design was completely different inside and the plug to the power supply was different.
