    I watched this guy make a repair on a PC board and used a new desoldering tool at 2:30 and again at 4:20. I gotta get one of these soon.

    Can't be that expensive.

    Refreshing to see a pro desolder something simple without talking about needing to use a hakko.

    She’s got mad desoldering skills!

    A bit tougher to do on an MPU board.

    I can’t do that.

    Awwww, I was hoping to see some new fangled tool.

    I was disappointed when I saw her do exactly the same thing I do on some boards.

    This is exactly how I handle boards with big giant solder pads or ground planes that are tough to desolder.

    Everything else I use my Aoyue desoldering gun.

    You realize this is just a soldering iron right? The desoldering is the act of pounding the component/board on the bench.

    I've show this technique at my anyPin seminar.

    That’s a lot of heat on the solder pads. Most old pinball boards won’t hold up to that.

    Quoted from dothedoo:

    Most old pinball boards won’t hold up to that.

    I thought of that - with my luck when I tap it on the bench, the solder AND the pad would fall off.
