Circuit repair kits


Circuit repair kits | 5 October, 2000

Has anyone ever used the circuit repair kits? The type where you can replace a PTH or SMT pad that has been lifted or damaged? It appears that you just select a pad, trace or whatever needs replacing from a panel and heat or glue it onto the board.

What were your experiences with this? Does it work?

Thanks, Larry

These types of foil kits work just fine as long as they are used before expiration. Scraping off the epoxy coat gets a little tough on fine pitch pads and etches. I have always like to use a solder sample board to retrieve my bits & pieces from whenever possible. That's just my opinion, I could be wrong!!!
