I probably don't do the precision work mostly talked about here; I don't
mess with multilayer boards much at all. Regardless of the level of
difficulty, a desoldering tool is almost as important as the soldering
iron when you are removing components. Very frustrating without one.
I'm picturing something that looks like a 3" tall shopvac hooked up to a
standard desoldering tool. :-)
