More 30 pin simms being produced today.

First up I got a new "pasting jig" made.  The engineer is likely no longer talking to me, but I got the design I wanted in the end and fantastic it is! Expensive, but I needed a way to speed up production as aligning the film by hand and taping the stencil on while pasting.. well.. basically took forever.

Pasting Frame with Plastic Stencil. 

Really expensive SMT Paste going on...
 All pasted ready for adding parts.

Parts on..

Into the oven to cook for a while..

 Hot stuff!

Cleaned up and checked.. Then into my 32MHz STE for testing..

Job well done :) And Finally...
