Any recommendations for a reballer for BGA and mBGA? Low volume, low cost appreciated!

Check with your BGA supplier to determine their recommended maximum thermal cycles. There are ample threads on this in the archives. Good luck. Dave F

All of my customers have given me new BGAs for replacement (even a $100 a crack), none have requested reballing or to reinstall a BGA that's already been installed once. Nor do I suggest that they do so just to save a few $'s.

An interesting thought, have you tried to use microstencils with solderpaste and reflow? I know of a gent down south of me who is doing it with success who does a fair amount of BGA rework...

Good Luck, Scott
