I read the above and rolled up my sleeves thinking that I'd pipe up
and volunteer to do it for you. After all, I have had many years of
experience with surface mount rework.

Then I read the forum post and saw what is being suggested. Eeep! No way.

Still, if the T42 is going in the bin, I'll have a go at a slightly
less random way of reflowing the GPU. I may well kill it, but if it's
a goner anyway...
