So it has been relatively simple to rebuild my IC legs as far as getting them lined up nicely and getting the wire to stick to the bottom pad, but I can't get the wire to stick to the little nub. The three legs were cut flush to the chip so it is extremely hard to get the wire to stick to them. For this reason, I fluxed my wire and tinned it and thought that would be enough. But it is not sticking so I thought that I should flux the nub itself as well. But I have a question about how to do this. Is it ok to cover the entire working area in flux? As in the three nubs...or do I have to apply a little bit of flux to each individual nub?
