Hello everyone,

i have a very quick question that i don't feel has been properly answered after scouring all the wiki's and forums and watching all the beginner videos.

now it was sort of touched on very briefly in the beginner videos, about soldering the frankenstein, but i would like a more solid answer if that is possible.

here we go.

when soldering a frankenso from a kit, all the IC's come numbered(well not really seems to start at #7), should i do them in that order? then all the SMD resisters and caps? then all the connectors and what not?

i have a hot air rework station and solder paste, and 0.3mm solder and a soldering iron with many tips, so those were the methods i was planning on using, i didn't think it would be a good idea to put it in the Breville smart oven pro, since we use that for food.

has anyone cooked a board in a toaster then continued to use it for food later or is that as bad as an idea as it sounds?

sorry i guess that is two questions now.

anyway cheers everyone!

packaging numbers have nothing to do with assembly sequence at all, those are just reference numbers for me to organize my tiny warehouse.

There are no official assembly instructions :(

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1409 is one of the threads with some hints.
