in all fairness, stay away from your wii with a dremel, simple skills show that it can still be soldered as it is, mines fine, why go hacking away as it and risking your wii, if u can't then pay to get someone to do it, took me 30 mins to do mine, hope this helps, cutting hacking etc is for people who can't be very confident at doing it,
The pins are manually cut. Some stubs are bigger than others. He might not have anything to solder to. But, if there is enough leg left, I would recommend reconstructing the legs (without trimming the chip), and doing a wire install using the regular pads.
suppose your right, loks a much neater job, although if you rebuild the legs arnt you jus soldering to the top of the legs anyway? i still agree with your method i just dont do it myself because i dont like sticking my chips to the board, but then again, much neater job if you rebuild
