  • Lodestar: what a Lode of gold!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - plentyful

    - cheap

    - flows well

    - works well

    - Did I mention the price?

    Cons:

    - Perhaps a syringe would be a nice add-on, but since the price is tiny and I can get syringes very cheap here in Finland, it's no problem. A few Euros bought me a small bagful of a few different kinds of syringes to test different needles and such.

    OtherThoughts:

    For the people that are having trouble with shorts when using this: learn to use it properly and only use a small amount, placing it in the correct spot. Even with only a tiny screwdriver you can dab the correct amount on SMD pads to get the job done.

    Mostly I use this stuff to mount 0805-sized caps and resistors, but lately I've used it to mount various SMD ICs as well - for example a SHT15 from Sensirion. No problems there, either.

    Bottomline:

    It does what it should, gets the job done nice and neat. And cheap. One of the best buys from DealExtreme so far.
