So if


Some PCB's are not compatible with lead-free solder.
So if you are already using lead-free solder please ask your PCB supplier if the PCB is ready for lead-free soldering.

More informations about problems regarding lead-free soldering:

Stannol forum:

Stannol homepage with informations for lead-free soldering ("lead-free" in the navigation):
http://www.stannol.de/Englisch/index.htm

In a thread in german Stannol recommends to use soldering irons with 80 W or more for faster soldering.
Reason: With 50 W soldering irons the tin-solder will melt, then the temperature falls, then it gels and needs additional 1-2 seconds to melt again.
Hobbyists may live with that.

Lead-free joints are matted. That seems to be normal.

In another Thread (also in german only) Stannol recommends the use of a special tip cleaner for lead-free soldering.
If you don't use it regularly you will get a black tip!

Maybe we can start a list here which PCB's are ready for lead-free soldering and which not (or not yet).

Not ready:
- Oakley PCB's (maybe 2006?)

Not tested yet:
- Papareil Synth Labs PCB's
