The perennial question in electronics design and manufacture is: How do I design a printed circuit board (PCB) so that it can be properly tested? To achieve this objective, there are a number of design-for-test (DFT) considerations and techniques.
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.

Israel June 29th, 2006 CMK Corporation, Japan?s largest PCB manufacturer, specializes in the development, production and marketing of PCBs and electronics devices for consumer and industrial applications, and continues to meet the demanding manufacturing requirements for many PCB designs, from single/double-side PCBs to high density build-up boards.
In the last couple of weeks ive been working with a new mechanical design engineer, i knew things were going to be difficult when i caught him putting a trial through a reflow oven using loctight thread lock to hold a smd led in place. But today i had to convince him "wood" would not be a good material to make a jig out of to go through the reflow oven. (...)
We have a new product coming soon that has a fair number of PTH sockets and headers. I was thinking that it would be good to use intrusive reflow on some of them to even up cycle times between SMT and hand insertion. However, when i called the distributor they reckon that the components aren't suitable for reflow temperatures, i'm not so sure about this. (...)
