Hot plate solder technique

To easily mount the sensors it is HIGHLY recommended to use the cheap solder paste method on a hot plate. A toaster oven can work, too. Even any fry pan on the stove top can work but check with the boss first. Getting the sensors well-mounted is crucial. After the flux burns off (about 7 minutes on this hot plate) a perfect silver solder job remains.
