    Default Soldering tricks

    Was wondering what soldering tricks exist; I recently had to replace a small surface mount capacitor (3mm in length)

    Tricks I know so far

    * Use a low melting point alloy to remove the component without over-heating the board
    * Use lots of flux and copper braid to clean off the old solder
    * Use traditional leaded solder on the replacement to keep soldering temperatures down

    was hoping to learn some more tricks for next time.
