RE: My new(ish) HP-45
Sorry Geoff, we'll just have to agree to disagree about using hair dryers.

Every person that has used them that I know (except you...) has damaged the device due to the excessive heat and lack of control. Of course heat is just heat, so it's not the dryer per se that damages things, it's just a ball-peen hammer when sometimes a tack hammer is needed. You obviously have tons of skill and experience so it's no surprise you had success, but I'd hate for people new to repairs to think that's the best tool to use.

The kind of heat gun used for shrink wrap (which I assume Tony has) is IMHO better suited for things like label removal.

You've no idea how many laptops, calculators, tablets and phones, etc. I've seen in varying stages of melt-down, since hair dryers were "handy" and "available".
