Desoldering Techniques

What?  No joy?   8)

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

Hello,

I'm still kinda new but this is a topic I really believe I can assist with - for a change! I was an electronic repair tech for 13 years.
What are you trying to de-solder? There's numerous ways, I usually go with the best for what I'm working on. Next is what tools you have at your disposal. The majority can be accomplished with a solder wick, for hole through I used a vacuum machine. I am sure I have more suggestions based on your reply. Happy to share anything that might assist you.

bd's link surely covered it with the exception of snorting it with a straw. I didn't see that in there.
