Mr. Pinball Tip:

Nothing is more aggravating than trying to remove an I.C. or socket and having the foil pull up! Try cutting the I.C. or socket legs off close to the body and remove the pins 1 by 1 from the board, sometimes with sockets you can split it in half by using cutters to nip it and it will split on it's own. I use a pair of close tip cutters from Radio Shack.
