I use a magnifying headset, it's the only way I can solder SMD 1206 parts but I've gotten pretty good at it and I'm ready for 805 parts now. At age 51 and wearing glasses since I was a kid I'm surprised I can still manage. It's easier without 5 cups of coffee first.  :D

..with our 25-30y experience we have to switch to chips in BGA packages. There is an advantage for us when we do so - we do not need to see the chip's pins/pads (balls?) when soldering it..   :smiley-eek:  :D


I don't want to see anything's balls while soldering, I think I'll stick to SOICs.
