Why at a low airflow? Wouldn't it take longer?Jared wrote:That works for newer drives, but the old ones require a higher temperature. I usually keep my gun set from 450C to 480C at a very low airflow. I'm of the mentality that it's better to use hotter air for less time than cooler air for longer.

You might wish to get some ChipQuik low-temp solder alloy (bismuth) and use that to lower the melting temp of the native lead-free solder. After using ChipQuik, be sure to fully remove any ChipQuik residue and clean the pads before resoldering with regular solder.
