b/w

(no subject)

I'm looking at a $425 soldering station and thinking that it would be pretty nice to have...

Why is it so expensive? Because it uses hot air instead of a metal tip to do the work. Yes, it can put out a thin stream of air at over 1000 degrees F. I used one once while an undergrad at the U and I have to say that it was a great for reworking electronics.

I wonder if I can find one used...
