Rediculous soldering ensues.

A project log for Point-to-point SMT Transistor clock.

Trying to hand-assemble a free form SMT transistor clock. Likely fail.

Well, I got the first FOUR parts together and it went fairly well.

I decided to put C12 and R43 on top of one another since they are in parallel.

I stacked them in the reverse tweezers and added a little dollop of flux.

Then a touch of solder.

Next I arranged R41 and Q11 in two more "third-hand" with reverse tweezers and more flux.

Add heat and solder.

This is the result. The first complete net of the project.
