BEST Instructors have put to video demonstrations of common hand soldering skills. These are not designed to be in place of live one on one training where repetitive skills and subsequent one on one feedback is given. Rather they are quick refreshers designed to be viewed if a specific skill has not been practiced in a while.

I am a lay person researching the application of non-woven material in stencil rolls either using branded material or non-branded alternatives for DEK, MPM Panasonic machines in SMT environments. I have read a number of articles referring to aqueous, ultrasound techniques as well as use of paper rather than non-woven fabric. Are these alternatives to the use of non-wovens when cleaning stencils in SMT or relating to other cleaning processes within PCB / SMT manufacturing? Any pointers would be appreciated.
We have spent the day trying to profile our Vitroncis Soltec Delta C wave with the new SN100C solder, but having problems with the heavy pins on some BNC connectors we are using. We have Interflux no residue flux, and we are using palettes, which are a little thick, but worked ok with lead based solder. We have two heat zones on the bottom, with cal rods, and then convection zone just before the wave. We also have top side heat lamps just before the wave as well. (..) Is anyone else running a Delta C for lead free soldering of multi layer boards with heavy connectors such as BNC connectors in them?
