going to install a wiikey tonight,

are there any docs on opening the wiikey?

The install looks pretty much straight forward, is it just the 6 solder joints?

nasty but fixable?, i generally use mine on the 330oC and a nice fine tip.

you might be able to save the chip by doing a wire install?

The gas iron I've got

210-480C°
1mm catalytic soldering tip

guess this should be good enough for the job, think I might have had it too hot last time
