Soldering Techniques –
How do you solder point "BGIHA" using matrix infinity on version 9 with the chip legs are so close to each other? What's the technique? I'm not talkin about the alternative points though it is too easy.
One method was to use the razor, but i never could figure out how to use it. Sorry for my stupidity, but when i place it between the legs, I could barely keep the razors to stay, and even if it did, the space between 2 razors is so tiny that i could hardly fit my soldering tip inside. By the way, my soldering tip is 0.1mm I believe.
Are there any other methods? I've seen a lot of beautiful work of art soldering at this point. What's the secret to it?
using two razor blades place one on one side place the other on the other side
try putty or gum to keep the razor n place
I tried the razor method and hated it. I just use masking tape, the green 3M stuff. Mask off all the pins around the one pin I want, piece of cake!
Wouldn't the hot solder tip burns through the tape? And I feel you on the razor part. Like i said, even if you can get the razor to stay, the soldering tip is too big to fit right in the middle, unless your soldering tip is a needle.

I use thin gauge wrapping wire for these type of connections, they don?t strain the legs or solder joints. For adjacent joints I just leave the tape over the completed connection and continue on.
