Great price and works well – LodeStar Soldering Paste (50g) Reviews

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

Pros:
-Works great for DIY reflow. -VERY cheap compared to buying it from a electronics supplier. -Plenty of it, it'll last you a long time.
Cons:
-Kind of tough to apply
-The consistency of mine was fine, but the possibility of it drying out over time is possible.
Other:
Would be great if DX included a small syringe applicator with this, or at least made one available on their website.

Works for hand soldering, but I wouldn't recommend it, as it didn't work very well for me (tough to make sure you melted all of it, potential for shorts).
Bottomline:
Great deal on some solder paste, will definitely buy again if I ever need to!
