Another new toy..

Post by exxos » Fri Dec 07, 2018 8:51 pm

This just arrived today :)

I'm going to try and use this as a assembly station rather than a rework station..

The problem I have with some things is that with sockets in my normal PCB oven, the sockets tend to melt :lol: :roll: , so I'm hoping I can heat the boards with this station on the bottom only, to the point where the solder melts, without melting the socket (as it won't be heated from above like in the PCB oven)

I am so trying not to get distracted into fiddling about with this for a while :)
