Remove the Soldered SMD Parts Without Damage From PCB


Introduction: Remove the Soldered SMD Parts Without Damage From PCB

Remove some SMD parts from junk PCBs and reuse them is reasonable for hobbyist.

Step 1:

I use a plate of used razor.

It is very thin and tough.

Step 2:

Heat and melt the solder then insert the razor plate between the pin of part and foot print.

Step 3:

There are no heat stress and no damage.

And It is very easy way.

    This was a nice tip - thank you :)

    I used blades from a carpet cutter which are much thicker. This is a good idea. Never thought of them (since I use an electric razor). Though I know there are used razors in the household ;-)
