By far the fine muscle tremor we all have in our hands presents the
greatest difficulty in SMT work.  As a surgeon, I deal daily with precise
movement and close tolerances.  Early on we learn the value of bridging to
control and eliminate tremor.  I've extended surgical bridging to SMT
work.  Use a small piece of 1/2" angle aluminum and place it in front of
the piece to be soldered.  Put the soldering iron across the angle Al
which becomes a fulcrum.  Experiment with fulcrum length for comfort.  
Tremor vanishes.
