Check out this new tutorial on how to use our Hot-Air Rework Station.
When you’re building your own embedded electronics, it is pretty much inevitable that eventually you are going to solder something in backwards/upside-down/in the wrong place. It’s going to happen. If it’s never happened to you, color me impressed. But for those of us mere mortals, there are times when a bit of rework is necessary. That’s where we often turn to our trusty hot-air rework stations.
So today we wanted to share the above video (and this tutorial) to help you learn how to use hot-air to rework with the best of them. We’ve found that using hot-air is one of the fastest, least destructive ways to do rework. We hope you find the video useful! What tricks do you use to do rework? Let us know in the comments!
