However the holes have to be cleaned anyway one by one. So with the desoldering station, the time is about the same. It's just a pity that a PET has to be "tweaked" this much to render it reliable, while a typical VIC-20 or C-64 is much more reliable even with the original sockets. Anyway, my 3032 is now working since hours with only the ROM sockets changed, I only need to test the IEEE port once I get a replacement MC3446 driver.
