I use Pace soldering equipment.  They have many different styles of tips.
For SMD diode or transistors there are two ways.  For a regular solder
pencil they have large tips with a notch that the component fits in.  To
desolder you just pick it up with the tip.  Picture a fat tip with a "U" cut
in it.

For soldering I use a regular tip.  I put a small glob of solder on the pad,
the set the part down with twezeers and solder it.  The do the other side.

Pace also has soldering Twezeers with tipe for everything from diodes to
200+ pin flat packs.  I have only bought tips for the stuff I commonly work
on.
