      Why do most of these sort of videos last so long? At least one can fast forward...

      The method I use is a hot air embossing tool.
      Make a hole in some aluminium foil for the IC and it protects the rest of the components.
      And some use one in conjunction with SMD soldering.
      And heatshrink and Birthday cards..

      Softrock ICs may be removed by using a piece of enamelled wire, anchored one end and slipped through the gap between the pins and
      IC. Pull horizontally to release each pin as it is heated with an iron.

      Somebody recommended fitting the Si570 a little off the board so a thin wire could go under it. I tried that, but others thought it
      a bad idea.

      Hi Chris, It s available in wire form like a stick of solder and is quite brittle. It s also available as a paste
