Hope somebody has experience with what I'm looking to do. I want to replace an opamp from a board with a DIP8 socket for rolling. The opamp is in a tight but not impossible place. I guess the simplest is to just snip the legs and then use an iron tip to push through the rest and cut my losses with the opamp (sorry if you're pun sensitive). I also understand that an ordinary heat gun might do the trick? Or would that affect the other soldered pieces around it? Appreciate any advice for consideration.
