Well, here it is.

It's like welding the legs back onto a spider. I've spent about 6 hours on it. It better work.

Here's a picture of my stress,...

Yes, that is what I used, thin copper strands out of some high gauge speaker wire.

It was hard work but I think I got it. I'm going to connect everything to it today and if it works, it's going into a glass display case in my listening room, however, it will still be useable.

it hurts just to think about doing that.

it reminds me of those guys who paint pictures on grains of rice, or carve sculptures out of toothpicks.

Yeah, it leads me to believe that the human body can still do things that only machines are supposed to be able to do. I mean yeah, a computerized pick and place machine could have installed that chip in seconds. The point is that I could still do it by hand with a standard size soldering iron, ordinary wires, and without any optical magnification either, just my bare eyes and also bare hands.

I'll have to see if anyone makes a chip with smaller pins on it so I can test my abilities.
