I'm willing to take care of any of your through-hole soldering needs! Replacing chips, installing sockets, battery removal/replacement, installing new components, etc.
I have 9 years professional soldering experience from my time in the Navy (1999 - 2007), as a 2M Miniature / Microminiature soldering technician. I was qualified to solder SMT, and even BGA devices. I saved the Navy over a million dollars in my time with them by replacing components on very expensive circuit boards.
I am a HAM radio operator, and keep my skills current regularly! My current soldering station isn't SMT-ready, but I can handle any through-hole work. Temperature regulated system with soldering handpiece, vacuum desoldering handpiece, and hot air handpiece. ESD protected workmat, and wristband.
Flat rates to be agreed upon before you ship your board, and I am more than willing to take parts or systems in trade for my work
