SMT desoldering stations can be very expensive. So what are you suppose to do? Make your own, and that is exactly what Alfredo did with surprisingly good results. For those of you that are wondering, YES, that is a soda bottle in there! Now that’s recycling!
Working with SMTs (surface mount technology components) is quite difficult without an smt hot air pencil. The prices of smt stations are too high, so I decided to build it by my own. The result is very impressive. Anyone with basics electronics can try to build it, it’s made with common materials.

This is definately one of the most excellent things posted here at all. Iam going to make me one with some more fancy temperature control, but basically there are some key ideas in this project that make it a lot easier to build your own.
Here’s another one that uses a hot wire and an air pump:
I’ve got it bookmarked for when I get “a round ‘tuit.”
