I had to fast forward to not see the guy cuts his fingers.

Sitting on a rubber ball taking no ESD care is somewhat... no words....

At least he is polishing the die surface. But all with the naked fingers sitting on that rubber ball.

I use a scalpel to cut the gasket, btw and of course working on a ESD mat.
Cring, same here. I got cold sweats.

And using a blade to remove the glue... That's exactly how I nicked/scratched the board on a sacrificial CPU. Using a credit card is much safer IMO.
