I have a couple chip extractors but none of them have that rod and disc in the middle. Maybe it's there as a heat sink while you desolder whatever you are supposed to remove with the tool :?:

I'll see if I can find my package of computer chips and pick one up with the tool. The di9sc could certainly act as a cooling heat sink when extracting.

I would think just the opposite..that it might keep the solder heated and liquid on all the pins for chip removal...

I think we need a video.

How does the center shaft move when the screw is tight vs. loose.

I am still puzzling over the spring loaded disc. Why spring loaded? So whatever it is contacting cannot be damaged? So it can come in contact but not push too hard on things at varying distances? If it's not magnetic then it must push on something or align something.

Also, the ends of the outer tweezers (for lack of a better word) do not have hooks like you would expect for a chip puller. The ends of the inner tweezers have hooks but they might just be there to keep it locked in place. However, they inner ones do look like they are made to slide forward (narrowed for a few mm near end that goes thru the bent piece of the outer ones)

also, pic or vid of how far that disc will move on the shaft

and i'm curious now since the pic doesn't show it well. does the shaft extend thru the disc when the spring is compressed?

I think it's more of a chip 'extractor'.The center more or less keeps you straight so you don't bend the pins..???

Could be used to remove IC's for sure. I'm still stuck on the need for the disc, the spring, and the rod. If it extracts something it looks like it can also install it.

Here's another similar tool for watchmaking.
