Looks dangerous to me?
That technique isn't recommended by any manufacturer.What's wrong with that technique?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. He's an idiot.I'm pretty sure that guy (that IS Mr. Carlson, btw) is an engineer. He's no ElectroBOOM moron.
I don't want to turn this into a diatribe, but I would say that YT has *some* useful information, EEVBLOG and Mr. Carlson's Lab being two examples. YT has a deluge of useless info. You may have been steering clear of it.YT has s lot of very useful information. For instance, see the EEVBLOG or Mr Carlson’s Lab.
The problem is that there are also many people going for the “quick buck” and post a lot of unsubstantiated drivel, which has not been peer reviewed.
*Quick buck is actually a sarcastic comment
I don't know and haven't tried it. Copper work hardens easily, so back and forth twisting may not be too stressful on the pads. Or at least, less stressful than as single twist.As far as I've been able to tell, solder paste solder is identical to solder from the roll. The paste is just tiny beads of solder mixed up in flux. In regards to the twisting; it makes me nervous that sooner or later the force required to break the leads will be enough to pull a pad up.
I have had pads come up on me, especially on reworked boards that have parts sticking up or scabbed on wires hanging off. The pads are not always glued down as well as it might appear.I don't know and haven't tried it. Copper work hardens easily, so back and forth twisting may not be too stressful on the pads.

So have I in exactly that situation. That's why the author said to be sure all the pads are substantial. I am not a champion of the method and have never even thought of doing it. That doesn't mean it won't work if one exercises prudence.I have had pads come up on me, especially on reworked boards that have parts sticking up or scabbed on wires hanging off.
