I'm doing some SMD hand soldering occasionally and am looking for a better way of getting SMD resistors from a strip, so their orientation is upside up and their reading is e.g. from left to right.
I normally just peel off the cover foil, but then the "pile" looks like the picture below.
I thought of removing the foil and use adhesive tape to get them out. Then, the resistors are aligned equally, but upside down, so, not practical.
So, what are ways to get SMD resistors from a strip, such they are upside up and aligned equally?
BTW, to get a clearer picture I showed 1206 resistors, but I mainly use 0603 (Imperial code).
