    when smd chip board contacts get loose is it better using the regular
    soldering iron to touch/press on chip leg at point where it comes
    out of chip package or down at the board contact?tnx

    Where the main thermal mass is, point of soldering iron at the junction of
    pin and trace. If, like me, you rarely do SMD soldering and cannot justify
    obtaining solder paste or sub-millimetre solder. If you have some way of
    rolling , roll down 1mm solder to thin strip and slice down with a razor for
    short lengths of sub-mm.

    For SMD de-soldering , on the cheap, on my tips files below
