3 years on from the last post and I would like to ask the question...Has there been a better way of removing headers?I have a brand new mega and wish to remove all headers from the top of the board and replace with extra long pins under the board.Cheers.. Mike.
Removing smd parts with a poker and a lot of flux is a crude and messy way to do things.Better invest in a hot air rework station.

Desoldering braid, with the proper temperature and a healthy soldering iron tip should do the trick!
