Pete, Russ and all smtneters, I will do anything in my power to stop this nonsense. I thought for a long time I was alone on this planet opposing this lead-free paranoia, until I met John Burke. He came up with the whole push back idea. The push back might never happen but we sure going to make a lot of noise, join and let your voices be heard. SMT user,

I started to write a summary of the report but couldn't post it (Too many curse words in it)

Jim Burke did a great job look here http://www.rohaas.com/ Click on blogs

Y'all have a great (long) weekend Don't forget to visit the RoHS grave

I believe the initial link is probably what resulted from what is reported here: http://www.electronicsweekly.com/Articles/2006/05/10/38545/EuropeanCommissiontoplugRoHSloophole.htm

My summary: There were people who were asked to look at ways to reduce the # of co.'s claiming exemption under the equipment categories 8 and 9 of the directive
