Well, I’ve become confident in my soldering skills enough to give surface mount soldering a try. The trouble is, not know if I’m any good at it or not, I’d like to practice some first, but I have no idea where to begin. I thought maybe I could pick up some scrap PCBs off of eBay, and buy some SMD resistors, etc, and try that out, but I can’t seem to find any PCBs for reasonable prices.
Sparkfun used to have their dings and dents collection, but none of the scrap boards are available, so that’s no help.
If anyone could suggest a good way to practice, that’d be great!
If anyone were feeling particularly nice, they could toner transfer a PCB for me and mail it to me. I’d gladly cover the cost of materials and shipping (assuming they weren’t too high :O).[/edit]
