Scrap Surface Mounts PCBs

by imaginerobots on Thu May 17, 2012 6:57 pm

Does anyone know where I can buy some unpopulated scrap surface mount PCBs ? I would like to practice on these boards with a DIY reflow oven.

Thanks!

Thanks for the links. Those are some pretty serious foot prints. I believe I can also buy surface mount proto boards that have a lot of cheapo 0805 footprints. Got my infrawave toaster oven hacked up. Now just waiting for my SSR and rocket stream controller to arrive .....

Thanks for this link! Can I be lazy and also ask where you'll get your lead and lead free solder paste? This is my first time doing surface mount reflow so any help on sourcing starter kit parts is appreciated (solder paste applicator, pen vac, etc).
