1. Disassemble mechanical keyboard that uses Cherry Reds
2. Desolder only the solder joints holding in the key (don't waste time desoldering the diodes)
3. Make sure to use a flat head screwdriver to take the key off the board, there are two snaps on each side that hold the key in place.

Cool. I got the same hakko 808 desoldering gun. For the price you just can't go wrong. Makes big jobs go fast. I'm gonna mod my K70. Nice keyboard, hate red leds, plus I wanna mix some switches for my linking.
