    Just trying to keep things straight.. when you say week/dry joint do you mean “cold” or “over heated” solder joint? A good solder joint will show a nice wetting (smooth and flowing with nice concave fillet) but the opposite is not week/dry it can be “cold which is large grany/greyish in appearance” or overheated (burnt/dull). Remember solder joints are to make an electical connection not a mechanical “strong” connection. You should bend your leads or something of the sort to ensure the part has a “strong” mechanical connection. Solder is very soft, its just ment to form a good electrical connection. Not trying to be confrontational, just trying to help.

No public wish lists :(
