OK, then, what's a good book to get that best covers lead free soldering? Is the one I mentioned a good choice? (still trying to figure out why that's such a difficult question)

Steve, I have her book. Its a good book discussing the entire process. If you are looking for a book strictly discussing solders, then it would be too broad.

Steve, Let me try to give you a short answer to your question. A good book in soft soldering would talk about the excellent characteristics of leaded alloys and all the reasons why leaded alloys are very reliable. In short a good book would advice y

Wave solder - Initially high cost but after that it is relatively cheap. Selective soldering with a solder pot such as the Air-Vac PCBRM models - Much lower cost than wave but if you get the right nozzles it is a great process. Solder preforms - s

What does acrinym---BNY mean? can't you use Paste In Hole process,if the pitch is large enough?You can find imformation about PIH everywhere. we have tried PIH,selective soldering,wave soldering,and found that wave soldering get the best solder joint

Grant, try TEKA solder-bearing connectors. They have a "brick" of solder that reflows during reflow. They work great! Jason Gregory

Hi, We have a SMT production like, however we have very little experience with through hole assembly. We design everything to be completly SMT based, however connectors are the only part of our product that still requires through hole assembly. Cur

Hi Grant, You already have a few good answers. If you have but one to a few BNC connectors I would kind of use the advice here or do what you already are doing aka hand soldering. I would not install a Wave Solder line for a really low volume of BN

We'd expect to see: * Solder starved connections at pads with large trace/pad areas. * Less reliable solder connections at pads that do not match the shape and size of the corresponding pads on the component.

Solder paste on the pads will keep part aligned. If you do not use paste, you will need to apply tacky flux. You should not run without one or the other.
