Teh latest trend in removal

Of course, the PCB may have been totalled in a shipping accident.

Why use a solder sucker when you have a chisel? I suppose that type of removal ensures the filter will be extra subtractive.

That’s from a Roland MC-202 or similar. The PCBs were made of cardboard. (true).
