Re: Removing a 15 pin chip

said by drjim:

One other thing I do to get nice clean holes, is to add a bit of solder to the now empty hole, and then wick it off with solder wick.

Gee that may have helped when I was repairing the washing machine board.

If you can't suction old solder, melt new solder in the old joint. Then try the braid or the pump.

My braid is almost gone.. Speaking of that which braid works best? I had the radio shack brand and it has mixed reviews, for me it does not start wicking unless I put some solder on it and use my 40W iron.

Interesting - I didn't realize "Solder Wick" even had a competitor.
