Default Re: Can someone recommend a preheater for large boards (up to ATX size)

Why would soldering a new one be impossible? It's just the reverse of removing one isn't it, with the advantage of getting fresh flux under it? And the replacement sockets are cheap

Having said that I find it harder to fit replacement LGA sockets successfully on my BGA machine than I do removing them for some reason - I would have thought the same profile that removed the old one would solder the new one but I generally find not all the solder balls melt for some reason

That depends on the boards - some are smooth underneath and some have a handful of capacitors there - I'll check out the link, thanks
