Description: The SparkFun Heaterizer XL-3000 heat gun is a handy tool that everyone should have. It’s great for heat-shrink, melting things, and even very basic low temp rework. The size is great for a lot of different applications and it heats up pretty quickly.

It’s a basic small heater, the standard output temp is perfect for SMT, small parts (under 2 sq inches), heats up in under 10 seconds, and as a friend found out it’s a temperature great for vaporizing - though I’m not sure about the safety of the heating element.
With solder paste from kester and this baby, I can solder small boards in under a minute.
Turn it on and it blows hot air, just as advertised. VERY hot air, I use mine mostly for desoldering SMT parts. It does a fine job, even with chips with thermal pads, large chips, transistors with heat tabs, connectors, etc. Also good for shrinking heat shrink tubing.
just as advertised, i’m very happy
It does a great job on heat-shrink tubing. I used to shrink tubing with matches (!) Noe, using the Heaterizer XL-3000, my shrunk tubing is clean and even.
