Potential Rip
« Reply #10 on: March 07, 2006, 10:25:51 PM »

It seems someone liked this idea a bit too much. Not quite sure if this qualifies as a rip since it contains different content, but the similarities are there.

Personally, it only looks a couple degrees off a copy and paste.

At least they did give us and USBmicro credit of having done this before.

I'm having a hard time getting the air hot enough.  I'm using a TetraTec 30 liter per hour aquarium pump, 3' of 1/4" silicone tubing, and the RadioShack 64-2060 desoldering iron.  I'm using about 6 inches of 18 gauge copper speaker wire that I cleaned chemically to remove oxides, and have tried everything from stuffing the tip (and/or the chamber that the tip screws into) so full so that it slows down the airflow substantially, to putting in a small enough amount that the airflow is barely restricted.  I've also tried wrapping it around a nail to give it a coiled shape, then packing it in the chamber that the tip screws into.  The best I can do is get it to melt new solder off the roll from 1.5cm away if I hold it there for like 20 seconds.  Am trying to desolder a surface mount resistor on a board and can't get it to move for $#!+ :undec: I've connected the pump to a fan speed controller to slow it down, I've covered the area with rosin flux...nothing works.  Would really like to get this to work...any suggestions?
