But what about the flex? That's all I'm really concerned about. I know I didn't nick the die on that one.
what flex? With Ivy its paste instead of soldier so therefore it will just pop off.
You have to think in slow motion. When you hit the IHS, the glue is going to resist the force of the impact until it gives up. This takes time however, and because of the "equal an opposite reaction", the force is going to come back and can only go up, flexing the top of the IHS. Kinda like how the hood of a car forms a ^ when you get in a crash.
