Hand Soldering-Mixing Sn63 and L-F Processes| 9 August, 2005
Ladies and Gents:
There have been several ways discussed in the trade press and in papers re: how to seperate/keep seperate Sn63 and l-f hand soldering tools. Some claim comepletel seperate hand soldering tools are required, while others claim that just seperate tips. Other larger companies have competely dedicated mfg lines dedicated to l-f mfg. Does anyone have these or other practical experiences on what works the best?

I do recommend dedicated tips and dedicated workstations. Make sure that your tips come in with no lead in the tinning. There is a new, green heat resistant table mat that is being used in the industry to identify lead free areas. If operators see green mats, then they think lead free. I will be happy to send you a sample of this green mat if interested.
