I got this fellow for Christmas ... https://www.amazon.c...ords=aoyue 8800

 

first thing I used it on was the hex buffer chip on a heavy sixer. I was putting off doing it for a very long time cause of damage I did to other cadavers I was working on.

 

I was getting pretty good at using the bulb iron. https://www.radiosha...CFQZYDQodUwMH4g

 

but the vacuum pump was a real pleasure to use. I am still unsure how the manufacturers name is pronounced :P

 

welcome to the site :)

 

Wondered how you did without it for so long didn't you? :-) 

 

It really is the only way to preserve these boards for the future - the desoldering vacuum pump guns don't lift pads and you only keep heat on the board for a brief period of time. Best to flow fresh solder into the joints beforehand, though - makes the joint let go much more easily.
