Beginner’s Package (Cost: $350)
The basic tools for microsoldering are a microscope, a hot air rework station, a soldering station and a multimeter. With this package, you can do BGA chip repairs, backlight filters, and basic troubleshooting. Microsoldering will be a little bit harder with these less expensive tools, but you can get away with them. This will allow you to try your hand at microsoldering before investing thousands of dollars and finding out that you don’t like it.
Don’t forget about the essentials too!
