&gt;&gt; Does noisebridge have a hot air gun for soldering? That would go a<br>
&gt;&gt; long way towards people being less afraid of this kind of stuff.<br>

&gt;<br>
&gt; I don&#39;t understand the affair of soldering with hot air...<br>
&gt; I transfer heat with more focus and speed using conduction than using<br>
&gt; convection.<br>
<br>
</div>Unfortunately, I couldn&#39;t convince Dr. Foote to make a video of his<br>
SMD reflow soldering hack @noisebridge - I don&#39;t know how he did it,<br>
just that he did it.<br>
It would come in handy now (not just @noisebridge ...)<br>
