- What are the tools used by professionals for removal of surface mount
parts? How expensive are they?
<<

We have two Metcal solder stations around here for the guys that do the
solder work.  These are high frequency, "instant on" devices.  In
addition to a soldering tip, they have an attachment that could best
be described as a soldering tweezer, which allows both sides of a
SM component to be heated and also grasped for removal.  Very quick
and easy - even I can do it.  The inserts for the tweezers range in
size from a tip for doing resistors and such, to large "paddles" that
allow a SM pic to be removed just as quickly.  They cost approx US
$2000.

by the way - different subject:  I use Lotus Notes and don't ever see
an "att1.eml" file at the end of the stuff echoed back to me.  Does the
list see this file and I don't because I'm also reading in Notes??
