I prefer 350 degrees C for semiconductors and 380 degrees C for resistors and capacitors. I know some will cringe but I prefer hot and fast to cold and slow.

Plenty of those in these parts!

I believe that the remaining assembly plant in Galashields has had the chop. One of the best gillies in Kelso was a QA inspector at a Kelso plant.........he laughs at my soldering!

The solder survey again?

I use Cardas Quad Eutectic solder. It makes a nice shiny bead. I guess it sounds good. 20 years ago I was using Wonder Solder. I love the way it flowed. Their new solder isn't the same.

There are many choices, I ended up with 2 different Hakkos, A 936, and a 929.
Both have worked very reliably and I have no complaints. For my hobby purposes only uses, this is plenty.
