Got most of the components. Waiting for the resistors and capacitors.

Ordered metric 0603 components instead of 0603 imperial components. Ops. Moral of the story don’t trust the metric system. ???

All the tools needed to make a good prototype board The soldering Iron is a Weller WM 120. It’s only 12 Watts but it’s great for surface mount and even some through hole components. Defiantly needed the fine tweezers and Flux to help flow the solder where it belongs. Now on to the coding.
