blow torch FTW ...just tap the mobo on the ground a little bit as you set it ablaze

i also could do with a batter way to remove caps, when i do it i just push down on the leg of a cap really hard with the iron so it melts it and pushes the leg out, although i often have to do half out one leg, half the other, then finish both

im guessing you arent serious about blow torch lol, if you are i have a pocket torch that supposedly reaches 1300 degrees celcuis

totally serious... I CLEAN a mobo of parts before I throw it away...flame it from the backside only....not the front
post #964 of 1336
wow. and the heat doesnt kill the caps? i just got 2 inductors off that way right then, worked good, but one of them was cracked anyway, you know how it is copper wire wrapped around a pole sort of thing? is the pole thing important? like if there is a little bit of it snapped off does it matter? presuming not, but just making sure, the wire looks mint condition ect

the "pole" is a magnet...if it cracked it was probably when it hit the ground, or when the copper expanded from the heat...it squeezed it to death.. as for the caps.. only electrolytic caps do you need to worry about..even they can take a good dousing of heat before they get damaged, I have yet to 'swell' or 'split' any from the method..and measuring 'uf' afterwards with my DMM, reads stock values for the caps....so they're good


*and YES the magnet inside of the inductor coil is what makes it an "inductor" ...spiraling voltage around a magnet, does something to the affect of 'slowing' the flow of the power...also increasing a circuits resistance to spikes or excessive droops in voltage.

Not sure if you guys can veiw this thread, but I made one a little while ago..

When you need caps, and the solder iron ain't enough
.

Torch ftw.

As you probably know, dscharge them before you check them with your multimeter or it could be destroyed.
