| | Anybody using this equipment? Got some pros & cons for me? We have the MT500. It is a nice set up. It works well, but come time for Cal, you are better off learning how to do it in house. Last year, they took serveral weeks to get the unit back to us. This year it was returned with broken parts. Not happy with there service.

We have 2 Metcal rework stations which we have been using on a daily basis for the last 3 years. I have found them to work very well, although somtimes the replaceable bits tend to suddenly become erratic (go cold). Other than that I am very happy with the system.
