Re: Hot Air rework station

That's kind of what I was wondering when I looked at it closer, it looked like that would be the effect. They work good! I've got a $20 heat gun from Harbor Freight which when I've tried to use it in...

Re: Hot Air rework station

I successfully ordered some Pi Pico's from a UK company ... they had stock and had them to me within 5 days. If you're interested, I'll look up which company it was and post the link.

Re: Hot Air rework station
