Default Re: Surface mount parts- RIP. (Rest in Place)

Yes, a good pair of non-magnetic tweezers, and then flux.

I'm not keen on glueing these things down. Although essential for high speed pick & place machines, some smt glue (ie the stuff actually meant for the job) has been found to turn conductive after some years.

One product in particular I can think off had a raft of mods to overcome random pcb leaks caused by dots of glue under capacitors. I'd have never found such faults without access to the manufacturer's bulletin.
