I agree with that, though, if a socket will fit, it's generally
a better thing to solder a new socket, and just put the chip in ;)

Many others have probably soldered new chips too. :) I think
that several people on this list already have basic soldering
skills. It's just when it gets more advanced than that, the
skills are not there.

Most people I know can solder some, but they need more practice
to be very competent. It's just a question of degree.
