Dou you have a picture of this tool? I never saw one, and I don't think that it has the same name in french, so the guy at the store won't understand me


BTW, what is the role of the flux? I ever wondered

Thumbs up I got mine......

Hi All,

I got my Black Dog dual to single DIP adapters in the post today. I am delighted - excellent quality. A small order, but posted by Global Mail for a couple of bucks - and well packaged. I will certainly order more to the UK. Keep the value to below (I think) 18 GBP and you will be exempt any import tax or VAT anyway.

A quick question for those who have used the BD apapters:

What is your preferred technique for soldering DIPs? I have a pointed soldering iron tip, but there isn't much room for manoeuvre. Any pointers to what is the best order to assemble these things??

Cheers

Jon

Jon,

Are you referring to fitting the pins?

Sorry for the confusion; I fit them into an 8-pin DIP socket, place the BD adaptor on top, then solder as normal.

Andy.

Smile Sorry.....

..but I was being vague with my question.

It is a tight squeeze on the TH adapter (to my eyes). I was wondering if there were any tricks of the trade to make the soldering easier. Looking at it, the middle 2 pins in the centre, on bith sides - but perhaps it is better to fit the DIPs one at a time.

Here's what I mean - a pic of the adapter with the ICs.

Cheers

Jon
