Using a soldering iron certainly has its time and place - and many of the SparkFun products you buy are lovingly made by the skilled solderin' hands of our production crew. But when it comes to placing tiny SMD components and soldering large quantities of boards, nothing beats stenciling!
The above video will certainly help you learn how to solder stencil, but hands-on experience is really the way to go - which is why we are offering another one of our Solder Stenciling Classes! This class, which takes place on July 14th at 6 PM, will show you all the tools, tips, and tricks you need to do solder stenciling at home. At the end of the class, you'll leave with an Arduino Pro that you built!
Also, a reminder that we have the XBee Series I and Series II classes coming up as well on July 23rd and 24th. These are two different classes which will cover many of the facets of incorporating the XBee protocol into your next project. Hope to see you at one of (or all of?) these classes!
