Surface Mount Soldering. There is no real reason be scared of it.

In the new year, I hope to set up some surface mount soldering lessons at the ham meetings.
There are many demos on Youtube, like this one..
I do think his hand soldering is a but rough, and I tend to use a bigger tip than he recommends.
Just the same, it is a pretty good demo of various SMT soldering methods.
The melted solder surface tension aligning the parts is pretty cool to watch.
