Re: clearing solder from very small vias

what temp did you use?
i set mine to 260 or 280' i'd have to double-check - if you go too high you can lift pads because you generally keep thse tools on the pads a lot longer than an iron.

any bonding is at the power company's side - either at the box or the transformer.
