Posted via FF Mobile "wave" soldering works OK, unless you have a joint that got contaminated somehow, so no solder sticks.. Had a Marine radio that acted up, on opening it found one joint with no solder, mechanical contact was all that let it work at all... freshly soldered & fixed permanently... Vibration is hell on solder joints in cars, more than one component I`ve fixed just needed resoldering... Unfortunately getting to the board is less & lesss possible on many parts...
