    Tom, I used the obvious but never read about using two soldering irons,
invented it myself, or co-discovered.

  Also, a recent addition that makes SMT so easy, the title of the manual is,
"Instruction Manual for SE400, SE400-LED,  Long Working Distance Stereo Microscope",
about $200.

  With a working distance of nine inches or so, it beats the pants off my
previous magnifier, Optivisor 10x where I have to have my face less than two
inches from the soldering area.

  .. got the microscope from description from W7ZOI web site.
