when they're sent to someone who don't like this "sport, I've never liked to do that to people who wants to learn. Besides the cruelty, it is very demotivating to be humiliated that way
there is no reason to use lead-free unless you plan to eat food off your circuit board, or sell your circuit in Europe.
one should think it would be hard to mix up such things
I'm expecting a video soon then
According to all the MDs I have discussed it with, humans cannot take heavy metals in in their metallic form. We are only able to assimilate it through the process of it being eaten by eg. a fish (in which it undergoes some changes to salts or whatever) which we eat later on.
yet I do *all* headers on it in under 40 seconds (if I remember right). But then I realized people could copy my technique and sell their own Axon imitation . . .
I personally have both solders at my desk and notice no difference from which one im using, but Soeren, i would love to see a video of what you are talking about!

Lead-free is an expensive pain with no scientifically proven health benefit for adults.According to all the MDs I have discussed it with, humans cannot take heavy metals in in their metallic form.

Yes, RoHS directives are not meant to protect the end user, but to protect the environment and people in factories.
Hi,I mean, pickled slices of cucumber standing in most factories lunch cantinas (or what they're called) actually emits numerous times more acid vapors than would be accepted in a paint or similar - sometimes it's hard to take those laws serious.We all know that alcohol and cars kill people - far more than lead do (unless in projectiles perhaps), but they don't get outlawed - and food in too large portions... Etc.The government wants us to sort our trash as well, but in the "other end", they just pour it in one big pile, as it is too expensive to recycle properly (but we still have to waste time and pay for several containers).Oh, the day a politician would make sure things worked out as well as intended and without bothering the people with nonsense, then I would be all for for it, but like it is now, I don't even wanna recycle our politicians.
Do you know of any papers on the subject of lead influence in factory workers?I would really like to see something consistent on the subject, because it strikes me as a decision made just to look decisive.
Unfortunately, no. I searched and had no luck. The impression I got was everyone wanted to know, but no factory wanted to open itself to litigation if workers were found to have been harmed. If workers can't prove it, factories can't be sued.
Politicians want to act on the will of the people, and do it asap, as its rightly their job. However 'the people' tend to react on immediate emotions and not on sound scientific facts (mad cow disease, bird flu, swine flu, Y2K bug, national health coverage, cell phone brain cancer, global warming, RoHS compliance, the list goes on and on). Politicians need to fund studies before reacting and passing laws, to understand the effects of such. Otherwise, the laws meant to help us could actually make things worse. I've always wanted an engineer for president, but thats just a pipe dream
