  • Designer's instructions have you solder one pin of each LED in a column, then reflow each one while pushing the LED flat to the board. I can't see well enough & didn't have a fine enough tip on the iron to risk hitting each one 3x (2x on one pin plus 1x on the other). I came up with a way to hold them in after dropping them in with the PCB component-side-up so they'd be flat with the PCB component-side-down for soldering documented here.

No public wish lists :(
