Reflow oven USB jack test with new heat profile

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Cranked the solder temperature down to 210 and tried some boards with bigger parts. Still looking good, though the paste dispenser will help a lot as the tweezers aren't the right tool. The lower solder temperature still scorches the boards making the tidy white silk a sort of blond roux...
