Hi, first time posting here :) I was recently building a batch of the AASaver boards (which I demonstrated at show-and-tell and got blogged at http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2012/05/02/aasaver/
). I thought it would be fun to document the process and share my experience. I used some tools that I found and purchased recently, including an electric vacuum pen, SMT feeders (manual), and a reflow oven. They are not very expensive, but make it quite a bit faster to assemble a small batch of PCBs at home. The blog post I wrote is here:http://rayshobby.net/?p=5081
Feel free to leave comments, questions, suggestions. Thanks!
