Benchtop SMT rework equipment

Benchtop SMT rework equipment | 18 September, 1998

I am looking for a small benchtop rework station for replacing bad QFP132's as well as a variety of SO8 to SO20 components and 1206 chips. I've been looking into some IR heating equipment as well as hot air tools, but have little experience with such equipment. Hand soldering is starting to get real annoying and tedious. I am interested in anyone's opinion regarding a useful and economical bench tool for this type of work. Thankyou, Jim

We currently use OK industries MTR 4000 rework stations, and I've got no complaints. -Ben
