Hello. I’m doing a project where I have a second hand keyboard that I need to desolder to fix a stabilizer and the bottom row layout. I’ll have to desolder all the switches to get to the stabilizer and it’s a big board.
I do have an iron but I have no tools and no experience in desoldering and soldering. I can’t solder before I desolder.
What tools do people here reccomend for desoldering? I’ve heard that pumps are ineficcient and solder wick can burn the pads and they can lift it off. I’m not sure where in Newcastle one can go to use some of these tools. Ideally a dedicated desoldering gun. Any advice or help is appreciated.
