Hot Air desoldering many pin thru hole parts?
Basically, im just asking if anyone has personal experience in succesfully using a butane soldering iron with hot air blow tip to desolder many pin thru hole parts such as headers, connectors and large DIP packages.
Yes, i know that it is possible to do this but i would just like to hear from anyone who can tell me that they have succesfully done that with minimal damage to the components
i already asked the exact same question about doing this for surface mount components, and there are more details there. Well, sort of. Anyways, here is the link:
