GIVEAWAY: Four tubes of Amtech clone flux

Posted on Thursday, April 19th, 2012 in contest, Global Geek by DP

Today we giveaway four tubes of Amtech flux clones that we bought in Shenzhen. Leave a comment below, and we’ll pick 4 winners tomorrow.

There’s some speculation if this flux is good, bad, smelly, or worse. We’ll test it out in a future workshop video.

    I never win these things but I still keep trying. I need FLUX! !!!!!!!!

  14. ben says:

    its pretty good flux, iv used it loads very sticky doesnt smell too bad but it does smoke a fair bit, perfect for smd as it hold them in place while you tack the legs

  15. Ben says:

    Dunno why I’m still trying

  16. Giuseppe says:

    I’d like one flux, very useful!
