DVD-36C explains what a low residue flux is and how it compares to other fluxes and describes changes to the existing hand soldering process and explains hand soldering theory with low residue fluxes. This DVD also discusses visual inspection criteria for solder joints and flux residues, wetting considerations, and the importance of the solder heat bridge. Other topics covered are ideal solder feed rates and techniques, lower temperature soldering and the increased importance of tip maintenance. Soldering demonstrations include through-hole components, gull wings, J-Leads and turret terminals.

The Seven Sins of Hand Soldering is the cure for improper soldering techniques that even the most experienced solder technicians succumb to: excess pressure, improper solder heat-bridge, wrong tip size, excessive temperature, improper use of flux, transfer soldering and unnecessary rework and repair. DVD-49C exposes each of these sins - explaining how bad habits can create undesirable results - while clearly presenting the proper technique so the habit can be eliminated. This visual training tool can also be used proactively for new hires - to prevent bad habits before they start. If you're serious about quality, this video presentation will be the perfect addition to any company's continuous education / improvement program. Also useful for re-certification 6-12 months after initial hand solder training.
