Just a little off topic, but I picked up an Aoyue 474A desoldering station on Alibaba for about $200. For working on old computers, best spend I've made so far. Wanna pull the PLA from a C64 board? Break out the iron and refresh the joints, then hit it with the 474 and it'll pull the solder perfect leaving clean free vias and a chip that will probably just fall out.
