Aoyue 852A Hot Air Rework Station

by admin on May.08, 2010, under Reviews

I recently decided to try my hand at SMD work, and I purchased this inexpensive chinese-made hot air gun. I’m new to this, so this is my first time trying it out. I’ll write up more as time permits. For now, here are a couple of videos:

    Thanks for that. I have been tossing up whether to buy a hot air gun to make the circuits for my Reprap. This was very helpful as a demonstration of hot air soldering and have given me a lot of confidence to go forward. Regards, David.
