I concur. As you get older, not only do your eyes grow less acute, but
your hands grow less steady. Heck, I need a binocular loupe to read the
newspaper. That being said, I've done some minor SMT PCB repairs; it's a
pain to see and hold steady, but perhaps some creative tools can be worked
As far as mounting things, at one time, there was a "do it yourself hot
air" soldering tool for SMT. I can't find the link to it now.
