Emergency de-soldering braid
July 23, 2009
So I need some components from an old modem board for a new project. I'm trying to rescue a DPDT relay and an LM386 op ap for a mouse bot.
However, the soldering job on this board is really well done, and I'm having trouble. So I need my de-soldering braid. Is it in the basement with my soldering kit? No. I must have used it up.
Where's my old de-soldering bulb? Lord only knows.
What to do?
Old coax cable. Strip off the outer insulation. Pull off the braid. Flaten in vise.
There you go.
