if you're stuffing and soldering lots of boards, you need to fashion a jig to hold all the parts in when the board is flipped upsidedown for soldering. basically, a component sandwich, two pcb boards, one stuffed with components and the other temporarily screwed or clamped on top. start with the lowest profile components 1st, dip sockets, resistors, then transistors & caps. it really help to have lots of hardware, clamps, clips, tools, etc. go shopping and get exactly what you need to do the job right. churning out a bunch of well-made boards makes an inventor feel good!!
what are you making again anyway? and where'z my motor controller? ever get it working?

Hello all,

I'm in the process of soldering some boards that I had manufactured,
but after the first one most of my sockets got soldered at weird
angles because the connectors shifted while the board was upside down
to be soldered.  Is there an accepted method to prevent this?  Best I
can figure is some sort of paste or other "goo" that would hold the
component in place until its soldered.
