The major problem (hazard for the BS2 is that any socket that gives good
pin contact also stresses the pins and increases the chances of bending

If I could find them, I have IC pullers for most sizes up to 40-pin
dual-inline devices. Even with about 40 years of experience, I avoid
unplugging devices whenever possible.
