Moh you copycat, I ordered my bdr FIRST :beer:
What I do is get a small piece of thick lower gauge wire and strip it and untwist the strands so they're straight. Then just touch the ends of the stands to the glob of solder and heat. Once it melts it will wick up into the wire and you can just remove the wire to expose clean pins.Hi Glenn
LOC arrived safe and sound, thanks again :beer:
I extracted the LOC ok but when removing the ribbon it left solder bridging all three pins and having probs getting them off, any tips would be appreciated
The solder doesn't seem to want to melt, I tried to remove the ribbon with a small glob of solder and it just clinged to the pins somehow afterwards ??how did solder get on the base? did you try what I suggested? The wire acts like a sponge and wicks up all the solder.
