Intermediate Package (Cost: $975)
This microsoldering package is for intermediate level technicians. This package includes 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, but don’t need to do the more advanced repairs. You won’t be able to do the very small jobs with these equipment, like connectors, small filter repairs, and anything that requires smaller tips. 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. With that said, you should be able to do a touch ic repair and basic troubleshooting.
Don’t forget about the essentials too!
