DeSoldering SMD Components easily!!! - Chipquik



#3

I have not yet tried this stuff, but the videos show it makes removing even 4-sided SMD components very easy!!!

It's a low temperature - high heat retentivity solder that stays liquified while you can heat up all four sides of smd component to then slide it off!!!

I think that stuff would be a "must have" if you need to save the components you remove. So far, I've only been upgrading the 42s so it is cheaper for me to just bend up one pin at a time to remove it. I'm just tossing the 8K chip I take out anyway.
