Today, I'll teach you to make a simple hot-air gun welding tool to move or remove small surface mount components. Using a standard soldering iron as the basis is as effective as killing a fly with a hammer. If you want to buy an expensive hot-air gun workstation, it seems a bit of a fuss. Look at today's operation methods, you will build a simple hot-air gun welding tool.
I don't know what we're talking about? Well, you may have to click. Anyway, it's an impressive feat. It may still want you to install special chips on a specific game console (or not). For today's operation method: you need: Radio Shack's de soldering iron small fish tank air pump 68 foot ethylene fish tank air hose de soldering braid or steel wool tie to modify the tip work of the de soldering iron requires a little bit of efficient heat dissipation air flow. We gently clamp the tip with our sub tip. The crushing tip seems to help guide the air flow, but we don't call it necessary. Let us know what is best for you. The next trick is to add some heat exchange material to the soldering iron head. Cut the length of the tin removal braid or obtain a small bundle of steel wool. The braid is copper, so it should be heated more effectively. Roll up the braid / wool and gently stuff it into a corner of the iron. Don't push so hard. You limit the airflow much. The air flow of the material slows down slightly and helps radiate the heat of the iron into the air. Gently reinstall the tip, it is made of soft metal. Because we don't have any heat-resistant tubes, we use suction balls as bulky but simple thermal insulators. Drill a hole in the end of the bulb with a 5 / 32 inch drill bit or similar. The hole wheel must have a good seal. Inserting the tube cutting the end of the vinyl tube at a 45 degree angle will help. Gently push the end of the wetting tube into the hole you drilled in the bulb. The other end of the pipe is connected to the outlet of the air pump. When cleaning things, airose is fixed on the iron, along with the power cord of the zipper tie. Later, we changed the zipper tie on the handle and some fashionable red electrical tape. Hot in order to use the gun effectively, let the iron warm up enough time without turning on the air pump. Once its toast is plugged into the air pump, it will be ready to go. In order to get a sense of the way heat transfer works, we tried our gun on several workbench materials. Heat shrinkable cannula tubing and we have no more primate methods to get the instant contraction of burn marks. Hot glue if you've ever used a soldering iron to slice through some stubborn hot glue, you'll like it. Hot glue is great, but sometimes it's the way to get it. The heated air liquefies the hot glue and does not burn it. Surface mount: but for actual welded surface mount components? Our solder paste order, so we had to test its pre installed circuit board. It can easily melt the solder joints on the chip. Conclusion the hardware of surface mount work is a constant challenge for us. We hate to admit this, but we may actually resort to breaking a certain SMD resistance to make some functions of our hardware. Apart from the crazy scientist look of our new tools, we can't wait for the console provided from the fish tank to others in the Department of defense, well, parts. And this, my friends, is enough reason to go through with this operation method. Yes, they built one before ending in gideontech. We will not melt the hose; No, we didn't read your first. To really give one of the earliest enterprises, we can tap credit and look at this one from 2001. If you don't like watching RadioShack shopping, they launch their own sacrifice microwave science.
