when you mount components on pcb or vero, do you solder as you mount or do you use some kind of adhesion or tape to secure them and solder them all at the same time?
No. I load the component into the holes in the PCB, then invert the board, bend the component wires slightly outwards to temporarily secure it and then solder immediately. I then crop the leads and move on to the next component. I never load all the parts first then solder - you'll go mad that way, with components hanging out of the board and falling out as you turn it over to solder!
