  • Great ideas guys! I recently bought a hot plate and an soldering boards in a 3/4" aluminum plate I place on top. I have to do the component placement on the plate and on the hot plate, and it takes forever to cool down. Does anyone know of an adhesive I might use to secure the components elsewhere then move the board?
    By the way: be careful with Teflon! Teflon has been "shown" to give off toxic and carcinogenic particulates starting around 464 degrees Fahrenheit (240 C) which is why I'm using aluminum. I've heard this as rumor and hear-say, and the quick Google sources don't look terribly reputable. I dunno if these claims are true or are FUD, but I've found the aluminum plate works well.

No public wish lists :(
