    Chip Quik Low-Temp Lead-Free Solder Paste (Sn42/Bi57.6/Ag0.4)

    GREATEST. STUFF. EVER.
    ...as long as you do not need guaranteed survival at automotive temperature ranges (melts at 138*C).

    It is easily reflowed by a Sparkfun Heaterizer and can remain molten for several seconds after removing heat. Had to reflow the tiny SOT-563 ESD/EMI chip for the DXL buss a few times on both the ShInDy and transponder boards because I did not get the stencils seated quite right*, but no dead chips or melted plastic.

    *Combination of tiny boards with SMD pads to very near most of the outer edges, not bothering to build jigs to ensure alignment, and the kapton stencils curling upward a bit (cut from rolls of film).
    Please pardon the pedantry... and the profanity... and the convoluted speech pattern...
