[sdiy] Low temperature solder paste

I’ve used CHIP QUIK SMDLTLFP quite a bit with good results using hot air. 

It doesn’t flow as well as the TS391AX50 I’ve also used (probably as it’s lead free) and as a result it’s less forgiving if you’re messy or too generous putting the paste down. It’s worth trying out though if you want something low temp as the low melting point vs flow is an acceptable trade off.
