I've done quite a lot with SMD components, so all I can really say is that it's practise. A good pair of fine-nose stainless steel tweezers, a fine tipped temperature controlled soldering iron and some fine 60/40 solder also helps.Hwasser wrote:Wow, those resistors are really small! xD I bought the ones suggested here, they are little larger in than the original ones, but they fit. Having a hard time soldering them without them moving around (because of how light weight they are), how do u guys solve this without a third hand?
just remove, if anything else was necessary then it would say so.Hwasser wrote: Remove R8: am I going to connect it together with copper-wire here or am I supposed to leavy an open space where the resistor was?
Have a look at the 12ax7 datasheet: http://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet- ... 12AX7.htmlHwasser wrote: put a 100k resistor between pin 7 of the 12ax7 to the top of R17: is pin 1 the one to the left when you see the tube from below?
After meaning it is in series with C12. I used a 10k 1206 SMD resistor, and this was tricky, I had to rest the two components up against each other in an upside down 'V' shape. Or in other words:Hwasser wrote: 10k after C12: exactly, what? between C12 and what? Am I supposed to drill a hole somewhere?
