Intermediate Package (Cost: $825)
Here’s a microsoldering package for intermediate level technicians. Again, the absolute necessities are a microscope, a hot air rework station, a soldering iron, and a multimeter. It’s ideal for techs that want to get started with microsoldering and have a little more to spend. These are upgraded equipment from the beginner’s package, but not quite good enough for connectors since you’ll need the microtweezers for that. Again, all of this equipment is quality stuff, but just not at the professional level.
You should be able to do most repairs with this equipment. It’ll just make things a little more challenging and it may take some extra time compared to a better microsoldering package. You’ll definitely want to invest in some good microstweezers too. With that said, you should be able to do a touch ic repair, filter repairs, tristars, and basic troubleshooting.
Don’t forget about the essentials too!
