Since we have no idea when DMS will be back open, I’m considering buying a microscope for use in building some surface mount boards.
I see several that use a LCD screen and camera that are fairly reasonably priced.
The stereo microscopes are roughly twice as expensive ( and up ).
For those that have experience with SMD soldering - are the LCD versions good enough ? How much better are the stereo optical versions ?
Unfortunately I never got around to working with either kind at the E-lab before the shutdown.
