Fume Extractor

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.

Compact Rework Station 

The Compact Rework Station CSI948D-2 is the latest all-in-one rework station from Circuit Specialists. This compact rework station has plenty of flexibility allowing you to use hot air to reflow solder, use a desoldering gun to quickly remove solder from through-hole parts, and use the soldering iron to reassemble or reheat as needed. With modern design and sleek control panels, this would be a dream gift for any Dad.

I know this sounds like an obvious point, however, a reliable and durable soldering station is not something to overlook. One of the most frustrating things, when you try to work on a project, is the lack of tools. Because of that, with the Compact Rework Station CSI948D-2, you can repair everything electronic our the house and the shop! 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.

One of the highlights of the CSI948D-2 is the Desoldering Suction Gun, a very useful tool to clean up damaged circuit boards. The Desoldering Gun provides constant suction as long as the trigger is pressed. Furthermore, the Desoldering Gun keeps all the dirty waste internally similar to a vacuum cleaner.

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!

Automatic Solder Feeder Soldering Gun

This is one of the cool tools that any Dad would like to brag about with his work buddies. The Automatic Solder Feeder Soldering Iron CSI929D-II heats up as soon as it turns on and with one pull solder will automatically come out. On top of that, this is very handy for handicapped users that have limited mobility and hand-eye coordination.


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 soldering supplies and tools for Dad’s Repair Station are a must-have in any toolbox and will put a smile on his face.
