The following is a list of must-have soldering supplies and tools for any Repair Station set up in 2022 Style. Makers today design, build and recycle their Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). Needless to say, if you are soldering inside, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of your family and everyone around you during research and development.

One of the most overlooked, must-have items for an indoor soldering station setup is a fume extractor. The fume extractor is responsible for sucking the air around the soldering area and filtering the air. Without the correct filter system, the smoke would be circulating indoors for hours after a soldering job. The Smoke Absorber BK486+ also comes with a flexible exhaust tube to channel the smoke outside.
Hot Air Station
Using a hot air gun is very similar to traditional soldering. Therefore, we can use the same grading criteria as a soldering iron for a hot air gun. The most important criteria are how quickly it heats up and how the temperature maintains during use. I truly believe a picture is worth a thousand words.
The Hot Air Rework Station with Vacuum Pickup, CSI825A, is a very useful tool to have if your main focus is on IC or SMT components repair. The CSI825A comes with a vacuum pickup so you can remove the IC with ease. The light-up stell ball vacuum gauge adds another sweet touch to any repair station and I can guarantee you Dad would love it!
Hot Air Nozzles
Hot Air Nozzles extend the capabilities of your hot-air rework station. Furthermore, when working with Surface Mount Components, a specific nozzle with special channels is designed so other sensitive parts won’t damage during repair. Take a look at our Hot Air Nozzles and get some additional nozzles for your dad because he will love them!
Hot Air Gun
This might look like your typical hair dryer, it is not. This is a Heat Gun for Shrink Wrapping, its temperature and the airspeed could be controlled depending on the user application. Furthermore, this Heat Gun can get up to 550 Celcius! The ZD509+ comes with 154 pieces of 4″ flexible polyethylene heat shrink tubing in a handy organizer tray
Especially after the pandemic, we are lucky to be able to celebrate with other family members. Getting the right soldering supplies and tools for the right job is the best thing one can get their father. If your dad working on soldering electronic parts most of the time, these items are a must-have in any toolbox and will put a smile on his face.
