Hi Rick

At first, i was reluctant too to solder SMD parts. Now, I am reluctant to solder
non SMD parts :) (too many holes to drill).

Next time i build a board, i will take pictures of the tools (soldering iron and
desoldering braid) and method (put a lot of solder, remove excess with bread)
and put them on the homepage.

This is not difficult, it only requires cares to line up components on the board
and to remove solder bridges between pads.

Furthermore, as some recent components only come in SMD packages, this is
the only way to go for them.

Do you etch PCBs yourself ?

Take care
