We just finished up a new set of guides showing how to solder surface mount components--without expensive equipment. They cover everything from soldering basic resistors, to fine-pitch QFPs (.5mm), to QFNs (no leads at all!), to using solder paste and a toaster oven. There's also a 9 min. video to get you started: Surface Mount Soldering 101.

We now have forums covering Soldering, Metal Working, a general How-To section, and a place for Imponderable Questions that bother us to no end. Post your questions and we'll do our best to point you in the right direction. Also, there are now comment sections on all of our guides. We greatly appreciate suggestions or corrections on the guides.
