Ahemmmmm

Some people think I talk to hear myself, but that is not always the case.

As I said a heat gun is difficult to use to re-flow. Never recommended unless you have practiced with it MANY times on junk parts and have got it figured out. Definitely not for just anyone to try.

1. NO towel trick...EVER
2. Replacement chips could be bought from the guy who did you reflow
3. Heat gun reflow is safer than the towel trick
4. Never use any repair with the word 'trick' in the name
