Replacement: None at this time. We are currently acquiring a new supplier for solder paste check back later for more information. This page is for reference only.
Solder Paste Stenciling is the easiest and quickest way to solder some of the trickier SMD components. Here at SparkFun, we use solder paste stenciling on pretty much all of our boards. It saves us a lot of time. But stenciling takes more than just a stencil and a dream... you're going to need some paste.
So here's 30-grams of solder paste! We wanted to get 50-gram containers but these are closer to 30 so this is ~~just~~ almost just the right amount of paste for most hobby projects and it even comes in a small reusable container. It does contain some lead, so you wouldn't want to use it in production, but it's just fine for hobby-use or prototyping.
Note: These tubs are labeled as 50g but lately we've measured closer to 30g of solder paste in each container.
Check out the Solder Paste Stenciling tutorial (and the video below), if you haven't already.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Experienced - You might be required to do some reflow or basic rework with SMD components. A heat gun, Heaterizer or other tools might be required, and a good understanding of SMD soldering as well as PTH soldering are required.
