After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
In the corner you will find a mini version of a solder bath. You see when components are being soldered to the back of a motherboard the assembly line passes the boards over a molten pool of solder. Capillary action will pull the solder up the exposed leads and firmly solder the leads to the PCB. Well the small green device in the corner is a mini version of that solder bath and is used to remove and attach board mounted components.
