William D. Callister and Lawrence H. van Vlack are the authors of the two principle material texts. After reading Callister, I've donated my van Vlack to the library used book sale. Without a doubt, this is one of the most well written textbooks I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
We have a wavesolder m/c with foam fluxer. I want to know:
- When we do not run the machine, how to keep the fluxer porous cylinder in a good condition? knowing that we use no-clean flux.
Is it the same when we stop for a few days or weeks,monthes ,.....?
Thanks in advance
Does anyone have any experience with setting up a nitrogen supply system to a wave solder machine that is equiped for it? Does the nitrogen need to be room temp or higher? Does it make a big difference with bridging or solder quality?
We bought a used Electrovert UPK650C and its set up for it and without it produces so much dross its not economical to run.
We allow people in our shop to take calls on their cell phones any time they get a call, thinking that in case of an emergency they should be able to respond to their family's need for help. We ask that people close their calls that do not require immediate attention and reconnect with that caller during the next scheduled break. Some complain about others abusing this privelage by attending to personal business during work hours.
