SMD

Thu, 2020/02/06 - 2:24pm
Little (very little) morning project while I waited for it to warm up a bit before getting back to work on the final touches at the Casita. Tried my hand at soldering four SMDs (surface mount device) for the POV clock kit. These are 2.5 x 4 mm resistors.   46,57,32,0,W
