Hi friends,
I recently put together a pretty in-depth desoldering tutorial and thought some people might find it useful if I were to share it here.

Desoldering: Tools, Techniques and Helpful Tips

It took me a long time to get good at desoldering, and I know a lot of other people also find it much more difficult than soldering, so I wrote this post drawing together some of the best tips I've figured out through the years, and explaining how and when to use various tools.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy! Smile
A.

I don't think I have anything to add to that, it looks like you got it all covered.
Well, maybe this tip from AlanP that was posted in this thread.
Quote:
Stainless steel dental pick. Solder does not stick to this material. Use either desoldering braid or a solder sucker to remove as much molten solder as you can from a plated through hole on a PCB, and if there's a remaining bit you cannot get rid of, heat the solder up, poke the dental pick through, and let the solder cool while holding the pick through the hole, as deep as possible.

I have tried it with a stainless steel sewing needle myself and it worked very nicely.

The Bell Tone Synth Works website looks interesting, I think I can get lost on it for a couple of days.
