So, I got around to it. Desoldered the S10430 using my new soldering iron. Built-in led work light! Oh, and a desoldering pump. Pretty easy. Especially easy because I had an IC Extractor tool..
(Please note: I bought a Duratool Soldering Kit. Includes all the tools and bits I needed – Except the IC extractor)
Got the dip socket in place easy enough, but soldering it in place was a pig.
Still need to check for bad joints.
Four of the pads are now missing..
I had a go at pushing the old S10430 into the socket, but it wasn’t having any of that.
