    Interesting read, I don’t really care for neatness or electrical standards to that level but then again its not my job :p
    I am learning alot from these kind of posts and it seems this topic is coming up more and more.

    yep used this:

    but :
    IPC-A-610D Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies (and it comes in Chinese as well)
    IPC-7721 Repair and Modification of Printed Boards and Electronic Assemblies
    are significantly better.

    This is interesting for people that think “only” ic’s can be static damaged.
