Since I am upgrading my soldering skills and tools I decided to buy a hot air rework station because I plan on doing some SMT soldering in the near future.
I have seen the Aoyue 852A prop up in a couple of videos and people seem to recommend this as a cheap but good first hot air station.
I bought mine from https://www.pcb-soldering.co.uk/aoyue-852a-smd-rework-station.html
VERY IMPORTANT: Don’t forget to remove the shipping screw before you turn it on. (Haha also don’t make the silly mistake I made)
