[Lab] PCB Assembly Companies

Populating boards is one of the things I do commercially. I'd charge a whole lot less than $500. I may even just show you how to solder some of it yourself. 1206's are great for beginners because they're so (relatively) huge.

Just send me a message off-list.

 Hi folks,
 I need to have a 10cm x 10cm, 2 layer, board made
 and assembled.
 I would do this by hand, but there are at least
 128 SMD/SMT components to solder (all on one side). Does
 anyone have recommendations for a shop that can do this? I
 would do them myself, but I don't have the tools or the
 skills required (they're just 1206 SMD LED).
 I was hoping Seeed would do them, but they
 refused to allow any external components during the assembly
 phase. All the places I'm finding assemble in USA/Canada
 and want >$500+ to assemble this, which is outrageous if
 that's my only option.
 Ideally I'd want a place to manufacture and
 assemble. I'd settle for a place I'd send the boards
 to and have them assemble (isn't this all done via
 machines/robots now?). I'd equally settle on paying
 someone locally to do it, but I can't afford to pay you
 much (I'm just a student and this isn't a for-profit
 So... Any suggestions? :(
