I use this for soldering small surface mount chips on DIP sized brake out boards.
Solder paste in a syringe style dispenser. Low melting point paste is a plus.
Tweezers, the sharp point style
A chip holder made from a block of wood and a springy wire and a conductive surface.
Sewing pin or needle tool
Step 1: Prepare the chip holding device
Drill a small hole in a block of wood and bend a wire with some spring in it in a U shape. Make it so when stuck in the hole it applies pressure downward onto the surface of the block. Attach a metal surface for static control. I used a copper adhesive peace. With adhesive copper eventually the heat it will effect the adhesive and some staples will help to keep it in place. Sometimes the board your working on wants to move around so staples can also be used to create an edge preventing lateral movement.
