Soldered all of the ICs onto the rest of the Dexter prototype PCBs

I decided that the fastest way to finish all 6 of the prototypes at once is work in parallel, meaning, place one bag of parts on all boards at a time instead of doing one board at a time and having to switch between 50 bags or however many there are.  So I decided to solder on all of the ICs this morning.  I made great time!  Got all 5 boards populated with ICs in 4 hours which is probably a new best time record for me.

Solder paste applied to all boards.  This part took FOREVER!

ICs populated on top of solder paste.

All finished with all solder bridges removed.  I am sure glad to be finished with this part!
