In this article I talk about a Soldering station and Hot air Rework Yaxun 702 110v. The motivation for the purchase was my project install a 2600RGB kit in an Atari 2600. Now he's already completed, but the network will keep helping on other tasks.
I have always had some difficulty with the traditional soldering irons. Even 30W sometimes seem to overheat and “disintegrate” the Tin instead of just melt it. Excess heat can also damage sensitive electronic components, or even melt plastic components that are close to soldier, in contact with any component. Melted plastic equipment already accidentally while he was welding components.
With Soldering station and Hot air Rework Yaxun 702 I can adjust the temperature to be just enough for the work I am doing. I realized that something around 390° C to 410° C is enough for my electronic solders, melting the Tin without burning it. I don't know what the temperature with working a common soldering iron 25/30W, but I suspect it's more than that.
Another great advantage is the hot air, that makes it easy enough in removing components. At the time of purchase I was still considering the possibility of having to remove the TIA chip of a Atari 2600 He was a soldier directly on the plate, If you do not find a console where he was in a socket. The AUNT is a chip of 40 pins, a bit tricky to remove only with a soldering iron. Another advantage of hot air can I use it to warm the spaghetti Thermo-retractable, I like to use to give a good finish in some welds.
The Yaxun seemed a brand that offers a good relationship between cost and benefit. Many experienced professionals work with equipment inferior to that, so seemed of great size for someone who will only do minor repairs and modifications in their electronics. Or modelo 702 was chosen by count with the soldering iron and hot air, with digital displays for temperatures.
A Soldering station and Hot air Rework Yaxun 702 It came well packaged, accompanied by the support for the welder with a vegetable sponge included. Also came several tips for hot air blower. There is a red bolt at the bottom that needs to be removed before use. It is placed just to lock the compressor during transport. The plug is in the new Brazilian standard, with 10A. On the back of the equipment indicated a consumption of up to 270W. The welder works with up to 50W.
I put the Soldering station and Hot air Rework Yaxun 702 110v for work. In the absence of a Workbench used a sink, don't notice. The first job was to repair a thermometer-hygrometer I have purchased in DX there's 9 years.

Later coached the removal of components with warm air using a defective source. After removing some components I felt I was ready to leave for the Atari 2600. But this is subject for another article. Wait…
