If you can get at it, 2 soldering irons, one on each end, works reasonably
well. When both ends are melted, just push the part out of the way.
Small/light things like 0805 resistors will frequently stick to one of the
tops by surface tension of the liquid solder.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
