Fremont, CA ‚â€“ SchmartBoard released a new product that makes it simple to hand solder through-hole components.
SchmartSolder are loops of solder produced in just the right diameter to fit over the component leads. One places the solder over the lead and flush to the circuit board and simply touches the soldering iron to the SchmartSolder. The SchmartSolder quickly melts and flows into the hole. The result is a perfect, neatly soldered component with no cold solder joints or other flaws. A video showing the use of the product is viewable at
The suggested retail price on SchmartSolder is $5.00 for 50 pieces and the product is available on SchmartBoard‚â€™s website and through SchmartBoard‚â€™s distributors.
