First 0402 SMD working.

Boy was this a challenge.  Must have ruined or lost 10 to get 1 working.  They are 1/4 size of a 0603 and I had to use extreme magnification just to try and solder it.

Biggest issue is positioning, holding (solved thanks to scoop and hint to use filed down self locking tweezers, and making good solder joints.  Did several and joint just broke.

Only can do a few tries at a time, tends to be frustrating.  Here is picture, the smd is the tiny bright dot in upper right corner on diagonal line.

Thanks Cameron
