  • Just wanted to check in and say that I can definitely vouch for this solder. I use it with the water-wash flux pen, which is a must if you're going to use this solder. I solder it at about 350 Celsius and plenty of the flux. Just gotta clean off your soldering iron frequently, or the flux burns up and leaves some black carbony stuff on the iron. It's easy to clean off, though, so no worries.

  • Helpful tutorial, I'd just like to request a section for making footprints for through-hole parts like DIP ICs.
    Also, you can verify your part's layout by making a board with just that part on it and printing it out, instead of having to guess and check on PCBs.

No public wish lists :(
