Hurricane at SMD scale
E-Labs Inside section
Lab worker Luc Lemmens is a ‘convert’. He has been persuaded to buy a hot-air rework station for use at home and bought the 852 from Aoyue (without the ‘A+’). A nice workstation for a reasonable amount of money, nothing wrong with it. Until you point the nozzle at a small SMD resistor... A category-5 hurricane pales by comparison. Resistor gone. What would you do?
