How to De-solder SMD Chip with a Candle!

Desoldering QFP SMD with candle.

This probably isn’t the prettiest way to do it but if you run out of tools and simply gotta get the job done, you can indeed de-solder an SMD chip with a candle!

I pushed the QFP to the side with tweezers and it only took about 10 seconds for it to start moving and immediately removed the board from the fire and I could easily lift the prized IC. Interestingly, right after the procedure, the IC was only lukewarm to the touch.
