    Solder Joints!

    I've worked in places that repaired boards that used both lead-free and leaded solder, so there had to be two identical soldering rework stations to avoid cross contamination. You can imagine the trouble caused when somebody took an old board with lead-free solder to the wrong rework station....

    Oh do sod off, you're fooling nobody but yourself.

    Lead-free solder does not mix well with leaded solder though. If you insist on using that lead-free tat then you have to remove as much of the old solder from a joint as possible before you remake it with lead-free. Read the tutorial I linked to, it's very good.

    I bet that's lead-free solder as well! Tell him to get some proper 60/40 leaded solder. Also, see here: http://www.epemag.wimborne.co.uk/solderfaq.htm

    First time I've seen anyone suggest that M1 was a Dave Powell design. Anyone got any proof to back that up?

    Lithium batteries like these don't tend to leak when they run flat unlike most rechargeable batteries.
