Socket Rework Tool

      A process tool has been developed to facilitate socket flatness
and eliminate pin pushout during the socket rework process.

                            (Image Omitted)

      This design depicts a tool with a flat contact surface engaging
the top socket surface utilizing spring-loaded angled side grippers
to eliminate warpage and pin displacement during the thermal cycling
phase of preheat, de-solder and solder processes.
