Quick 861DW Hot Air Rework Station 1000W
The Quick 861DW ESD is an inexpensive hot air station with a high power of 1000 watt and it has a maximum airflow of 120 litres per minute. This device is designed for soldering SMD components such as SOIC, QFP, PLCC, CHIP and BGA. Furthermore, the Quick 861DW is also suitable for drying, removing paint, melting, heating and disinfecting surfaces. Due to the high power and a ceramic heating element, rapid heating to the desired temperature is possible. The 861DW ESD has three channels where the temperature and the amount of airflow can be set and these settings can be memorized by the device.
The Quick 861DW ESD uses a magnetic switch, which immediately activates the sleep mode when the handle is placed in the holder. Moreover, this device has an automatic cooling system, which allows for an extended service life of the heating element and the holder. The settings can be blocked by means of a password.
1. Has CH1, CH2, CH3 three working channels , and each channel can be set to the amount of wind , and temperature.
2. With password protection and key lock function .
3. To facilitate real-time operation , with a magnetic switch control lever is placed in the handle holder immediately into hibernation .
4. With automatic sleep function , in a dormant state parameters can be set .
5. Sensor closed loop, microcomputer zero trigger temperature control, power, heating quickly , easily and precisely adjust the temperature stable , free from the influence of wind .
6. vortex brushless fans, air flow adjustable , wide range , can be adapted to a variety of uses .
7. The system has an automatic cooling function of wind capacity , extend the life of the heating element and protect the hot air handle.

Engineer SS-02 Solder Sucker Silicone Nozzle. Made in Japan.
The Engineer SS-02 Solder Sucker is at the cutting edge of solder removal technology. The flexible heat resistant silicone tip allows the nozzle to come into direct contact with the soldering iron without damage, and allows the nozzle to ‘envelope’ the solder joint. This dramatically improves suction, and leaves less solder residue remaining.
Unlike the SS-02, traditional solder suckers have a solid nozzle. In order to avoid heat damage these hard and inflexible nozzles require the user to leave a small gap between the nozzle and soldering tip. This gap reduces the tool’s effectiveness.
The SS-02’s plunger is within easy reach of the thumb, making it ideal for one-hand operation in continuous work.
The self-cleaning shaft prevents clogging, and the unit is easily disassembled for quick maintenance.
Nozzles are easily replaced: The SS-02 comes with a a spare silicone tube which can be cut-to-size to yield several fresh nozzles. Replacement packs of 2 x 50mm length silicone tubes
Goot Wick Desoldering Braid Solder Soldering Tin Remover Wire 1.5m
Gootwick Desolder Braid 1.5m
Copper desoldering braid that quickly removes unwanted solder from a joint
Ideal for cleaning up solder joints. Place the cold braid end on the solder that is to be removed. Place the hot soldering iron tip on top of the braid. Remove the braid and the hot iron at the same time. Cut off the end that contains the unwanted solder. The temperature of the soldering iron bit must be sufficient to liquify the solder efficiently.

Kester Leaded Solder PN#24-7150-9710
ester 285 Mildly Activated Rosin Flux is classified as Type ROL0 flux under IPC J-STD-004. This flux was formerly classified as Type RMA per QQ-S-571. 285 consists of high quality, purified rosin to which a synergistic combination of activating agents has been incorporated. The fluxing ability of 285 is much greater than ordinary mildly activated rosin fluxes and is comparable to fully activated rosin fluxes. 285 has been developed for use in the electronic industry where difficult assemblies are to be soldered, but process requirements stipulate use of a mildly activated rosin flux.
This is what I use for holding PCB’s. It’s OK, the spring tension is quite high so Its hard to push down but it holds items solid. It’s better than having the PCB sliding around the desk!
