I find myself in possesion of a solder pot from a production machine that was sent to scrap. The scrap man was uninterested in the 2 ton pot. Does this thing have value ?? Or am I stuck with a hunk of Hasmat ???

I think what Chunks meant is... TOOLING = THOSE POTS So basically, if some of your SMT or Through-Hole parts move around via a redesign or a respin, you will incur tooling costs (TOOLING is "THOSE LITTLE POTS FULL O' SOLDER.") When you're research

I recently witnessed a process in which the solder pot operator used Techspray WSOL water soluble masking to cover the areas around a connector that was to be soldered on the solder pot. He did not wait for the WSOL to cure. He soldered immediately.

The way it works is the liquid solder immediatley cures (or should I say burns) the WSOL where ever it touches it. This hardens and keeps it in place and protects whatever is under it. Some of the WSOL falls of in the pot. I am suprised that the burn
