Give me a solder gun, and I can produce ...

smileymon Useful Audio tool on SMD solder joints (321 comments)

Here's a tip to quickly Audio inspect large number of SMD solder (j)points, take a small wooden stick approx 6" to 9" long (to fit in one hand), heat shrink wrap and a average size sewing needle. You reverse the needle when heat shrinking it to the stick, leave a reasonable length running out, ensure it's well fixed( triple shrink wrap here). You run the needle tool over the solder joints and with a solid solder joint, you can hear these 'ring'. You can hear the dud's as a dull sound and check then solder these suspect joints. I hasten to add, there is a small learning curve involved in differentiating the duds, but you soon get up to speed and this takes the guess work out of non-soldered joints and really does save you time.

smileymon missed the obvious? (52 comments)

It seems to me these guys are looking directly to applying "The Wisdom of Crowds". Just like slashdot where the inputs vary from a diverse range of abilities and users some from the shallow end of the gene pool right up to the selfless experts in their own lunchtimes.
