Fluxes in Europe
 
Simple question, cause it seems that all the flux related threads are from people in the US :)

Where is everyone getting their fluxes from in the EU? Unfortunately my country is small and I can't find anyone, so the only option seems to be to buy online and get it shipped. The stores I found have ridiculous shipping costs.

I've been using Mechanic stuff from China, however it's full of rosin and becomes a mess and a nightmare to clean.

@stj, always to the rescue :)

Paste flux for soldering. Not sure if I understood your question correctly.

Yes correct :) I don't have the right tools to fix BGAs.

Thanks. I came across TME before, and it's good. It's however not worth shipping a buy a single tube from them... makes sense to order a couple of items then the shipping cost can be justified :) Although, the shipping doesn't seem to be high either (maybe I'm used to the super low shipping from China) :d
