You can practice soldering 1206 SMDs (resistors, leds, capacitors) on a regular protoboard, since the distance between the 1206's pins is 0.1".
I was only talking about learning SMD skills, Osgeld
so I am at a loss then, how does buying a already soldered board help you learn smd soldering skills ?
As an SMD-nooby, I could be wrong, but isn't desoldering SMD ICs deviously difficult?
But if it's a 2-lead component (like a resistor), the leads are on opposite sides, and I assume that by time you heat up one side, the other has cooled..?
