Cheapest way to get into surface mount?
« on: December 25, 2015, 11:45:10 AM »
I can't help but notice that there is a wide plethora of good uses for Surface mount stuff; sadly, I don't really know how to cheaply acquire equipment for it. 

What is the cheapest domestic way to enable oneself to solder surface mount components?  Thanks to kiCad, and a few chemicals, I can etch (or skip that and just order :P) my own boards....

Thanks in advance!

    While I personally have not done any SMD soldering, I can recommend a good video tutorial that shows various tools and techniques for soldering surface mount devices. Here is the link: Hope this helps,
