The Evil that is SMD soldering!

Post by Bikerbob » Tue Mar 19, 2019 2:03 pm

So, I dont feel like buying components just to destroy them learning how to do something I no longer have the steady hand or focus for.

BUT there is many a project out there that I would love to have.. and the developers have decided they dont want to spend hours and days making bunches of these things to sell to us unwashed lot..

IS there reasonable pcb services? that will make the board and populate SMD components? Either professional.. or hobbiest..

People willing to build boards for those of us unable to do it ourselves??
