3. Apply a small bead of solder paste along the land pattern using a dispenser. (A)

4. Position component onto lands using a HandiPik® or tweezers. (B)

6. Direct hot air over component with tip at a distance of 2.5cm (1.0”) to pre-dry solder paste.(D)

7. When pre-drying is observed (paste has dull, flat appearance), bring tip closer (0.5cm [0.2”]) and slowly move tip along each row of leads to form proper solder fillets. (E)

8. Return the Mini ThermoJet® to its Tip & Tool Stand.

9. Clean, if required, and inspect.
