Mr. Pinball Tip:

Removing printed circuit board components can be tedious and if done incorrectly can damage the board traces. Many components such as transistors can be easily clipped off and then the holes and leads cleaned out with a desoldering braid. Sometimes the components are spaced so tightly that you cannot clip the leads. An easy way to remove these is just to bend the component back and forth a few times until it breaks off. Then you can clean up as usual.
