We all know that plated-through hole is should be larger than lead diamater, but how much largershould it be to get good solder wetting?
Can anyone give me suggestions on how much clearance around the component lead I should have in order to get good solder wetting and adhesion.
Making up a jig to hold the parts in the proper location while they are being soldered. It can be fancy for wave soldering or something simple that holds the parts while being hand soldered.
I don't think you should depend on the holes to locate the part when tolerances are important for you.
