Will Philadelphia Work? My SMTA colleagues and I are putting together a Q/A. We will be having a panel discussion on Lead free on Oct 29. The panel is made up of industry leaders. Aim Solder- David Suraski, Cookson/Alpha/Electronic Assembly Materials- Chrys Shea and Michael Marczi, Kyzen-Jim Farley, Creyr Innovations-Jim McLenaghan , and a few others. I have invited a few other Solder manufactueres and industry experts to sit in on the discussion. It should be informative.

Let me know if you can make it

Wish I had read your post sooner. Kester University gave a free seminar at Bethesda, MD 15 Oct. All day, food included, about Lead-Free Assembly. I went, it was worth the two hour drive. Call 800-253-7837 if you want future information.

Also the American Competitiveness Institute at Philadelphia Internation Airport offers a No-Lead training class. They are on the web as ACI or EMPF. I qualified as a J-Standard instructor there and they provide much good data. Hope this helps.
