We manufacture products that are double sided SMT (double sided reflow) and then have through-hold connectors attached to several of the sides. Currently we solder the connectors by hand, which works fine but takes a lot of time. I'm tempted to get a manual solder fountain - something like http://www.apsgold.com/gw10.html
If anyone has experience using these in production, I'd love to hear it. It seems like I could save several minutes per board.
