Re: Need help reading a schematic.

10 boards down, two more to go!!!! Then I just need to find some solderable flat pieces of metal to attach them all together.

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

I tried the 590F (310C) and it worked but took a bit longer to melt the solder. Is there any dangers to using a higher temp? When I set it to 630F (332C), that seemed to work the best.

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

Thanks! I'll give it a shot later. I usually was using 600F for the soldering when I was using the silver stuff and then 650 when I was desoldering. I'll give the 590F (310C) a shot and see how...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

So 310 celsuis would be what? 590 F, right? I'll lower it to 590 F and see how that works. I had it set a bit high for desoldering and just never set it back. Thanks!

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

I just burned myself on this Weller! It's the first time on this iron! 650 degrees F (around 343 C). It left a nice white mark on my finger where the iron touched. It's about 1/4" (6 - 7 mm)...

Okay. Could you link me to the type of cutters you're talking about? Thanks!

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

I've seen this method done in videos but when I try I mess up horrible! I tip my hat to anyone that can do it that way. It's simply amazing! My hands shake pretty bad sometimes. Usually it...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

Man, I had a scare! Took me a bit to figure it out. Soldered all the UV LEDs on the board and one whole column (four UV LEDs) didn't light up at all! I thought for sure it was the trace. I...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

So the power supply powers the UV Exposure Time circuit board, which powers the UV LEDs. The power supply should have a fuse in it I'm thinking but is it possible that the power supply would break...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

Thanks! First time I've successfully used the hot air rework station to actually solder something. It's great for removing stuff. Glad I didn't have much problems.

On a side note, when I...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

So, what do you think of the solder job using solder paste and a hot air rework station? I think it isn't too shabby. I had a little trouble. The only problem was trying not to put too much paste...

Yeah, never really meant anyone like my wife before. She'll pour a glass of wine and just drink a 1/4 or maybe 1/2 a glass and just leave the rest. When I used to drink, I always drank until I...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

Oh! That's where my mistake was! Watching the videos on the BGA and just assuming the flux was the same for SMD components! Duh! Man, wish I had a nitrogen gas-flow system. Also wish I had...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

I got flux in that needle / syringe type thing but I also have solder paste. It's silver in colour. I "paint" it on the pads / terminals and when I heat it up, it melts into a silverish type...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

It was something that was suggested on a forum. I didn't actually look into the reasoning behind it. This was the post:

I am working with SMD for a while and I suggest you use leaded solder to...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

You sure about that Stj? Is the flux just for desoldering and I mistakenly thought it was for soldering as well?

One product is ChipQuik Lead-Free SMD291 Tack Flux N/C for rework & reflow. The...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

OKay. I'm not very good with the hot air. I'm afraid I'm going to fry one of the boards. I usually use the hot air rework station for removing components but perhaps I should give it a shot. ...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

Thanks. I haven't been using a flux core solder. I've been using a silver bearing solder and I have various types of flux. What seems to work okay is this liquid no-clean flux. I wasn't...

Would this be one of those fiberglass screw drivers?

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

Okay! Thanks guys. What I've been doing is putting solder to one pad, then using tweezers, I've been putting the resistor over the pad that I soldered, then I heat that solder a little bit, move...

Re: Need help reading a schematic.

Hey Budm, one last question here. I think I know the answer though. But each board will be provided 15 VDC, right? Because of that trace that connects the various boards together, the big fat...

Got the second board done as well! Looks a bit nicer with the SMD resistors. I think I'm getting better at soldering those dang little things! Lost one on the carpet and took us like 30 minutes...
