[* black] To open the hole blocked by solder, heat the solder pad with the tip of a soldering iron while pushingiron. Push through the molten solder from the other side of the hole with a staple or sewing needle.
[* icon_note] In our case, we decided to use a right angle pick. Lead solder will not stick to steel, so pretty much any
thin steel rodcan be used.
[* icon_caution] Do not overheat the the solder pad. PushingPushing the tool all the way through the hole may require heating the pad several times. AsAs a rule of thumbthumb, heat the solder just enough for it to melt, then remove the soldering tip of the soldering iron from the pad. ExcessiveExcessive heat will damage electronic components.
[* icon_note] In our case, we decided to use a right angle pick. Some other possible tools for this process include straightened out staples or thin sewing needles. Lead solder will not stick to steel.
