medical and aerospace have blanket exemptions from leadfree ROHS requirements. because leadfree puts people and safety at risk.
I know there are exemptions for aerospace but that's mainly due to the lack of years of experience with the newer materials. The aerospace industry has been very busy figuring out if and how a switch to lead free will impact them for years now. It recognises the "leaded" supply chain is drying up. Leadfree may put "people and safety" at risk although I'm not quite sure those are actually different things.

Aerospace tends to move at a glacial pace on all things. Proven designs and materials only for production stuff.

I got this at a local market for a song ($82 "Texan pesos"). Despite the two scuffs at the front, it is pretty unblemished everywhere else, including its internals.

I really couldn't believe my luck, really. Also, it is spot on against the DMM Checkplus.

(edit) rotated the image.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

If one compares high-quality lead-free to high-quality leaded, the lead-free is really only minimally harder to work with, aside from needing a few degrees higher temperature.
I agree with that. Always get high quality lead-free solder from a reputable brand. I'd like to add that lead free solder seems to have a much narrower temperature range over which it leads to good results so the temperature of the soldering iron is much more critical.

medical and aerospace have blanket exemptions from leadfree ROHS requirements. because leadfree puts people and safety at risk.
No, not any more. The blanket medical exemption ended 5 years ago, and the scope of the remaining exemption has continued to narrow since: https://www.tuvsud.com/en/industries/healthcare-and-medical-devices/medical-devices-and-ivd/restricted-hazardous-substances

Another save from ewaste, bit dusty but otherwise in very good condition.

Yes. And most unbelievable are the cages some of those beancounters build around their 'scrap'.
I bet they get off on the sight of drooling engineers and technicians at those sites, sitting with pervert grins and telling off any offer of money with a ugly sadist 'noooOO!'. :box: :box: :box: :horse:

I stood with a colleague in front of one such cage. On top of other stuff there were about ten immaculate CII (pre-Tyco!) vacuum relais freshly chucked in. Two days earlier, I saved the same company hundreds of bucks when that cage was open and I discovered that some other department threw away Pomona 4mm shorting plugs /bridges en masse that I was about to order anew.

I can only agree... Although I have tongue cramps from trying to pronounce it out loud.

I've been at it for years, going where I shouldn't be because when I act like a civilised animal I (almost) always get a straight "NO". (That's without asking too often, the right approach could be to ask 4-5 times a day until the idiots give-up.)

I must admit ther's a little adrenaline involved in the "Fuck you too!" process of going for forbidden trash treasures, besides I do have a slight case of TEA and electro-junk addiction in general.

Where it really gets disgusting is that it's the same way with so many things other than T.E., a minority of wasteful idiots decide goods are going to be destroyed, while that happens the average consumer is being eco-brainwashed into thinking the planet needs saving. (That comes at a cost for the consumer of course... Let me laugh, who cares for ecology?)
