I am giving them away for the community for their help with resolving a significant issue I once had.
I gave a little donation to wire for his efforts too.
Pm with your address and I'll post one out.

I use hot air to remove chips which is real quick. I have seen people use a paint stripper but it can do damage if you overheat.
When you solder back on, solder, solder and resolder - it has to go on well or it won't work.
