NEW PRODUCT – Lead-Free Hot Air Gun Soldering Rework Station w/ Four Nozzles – ATTEN ST-862D


If you’ve ever made a mistake when surface-mount soldering, you’ll know how much of a pain it can be to fix it without the right tools. It can add critical time to a project and can seriously stymie your soldering momentum if you run into a bad component or a faulty reflow. With the ATTEN ST-862D Hot Air Soldering Rework Station, you can easily rework your boards and get your project back on track. It’s also possible to use solder paste (in a syringe for example) to apply the paste and then blow hot air over it to melt the solder and get the components into place.

This powerful station has an internal pump and heater to blow a steady stream of temperature-controlled hot air to make it super easy to remove components, fix joints and jumpers, replace missing components, or just correct something you’ve done wrong.

The ST-862D matches up performance with hot air stations that cost three times as much! It’s also a good alternative to the Quick 861 at a lower price. It’s great for beginners to experts thanks to its super-fast heat-up time and easy-to-use button interface. You can save and restore ‘profiles’ so you have one for lead-free, lead, small chips, or large. Comes with a nice stand and four different nozzles for different sized parts, three of which are angled to make it easier to hold the wand while heating up a zone.

It has a closed-loop temperature control range between 100℃-480℃ (212℉-896℉) and a digital display so you can easily tell what temperature the air’s blowing at. It has a power consumption of 1000W and an intelligent cooling system, so the airflow remains on until it gets to below 100°C. Airflow is 20 – 130L/min, but for most work, you’ll want to keep it at the lower end of that.

Just make sure to let the rework station heat up all the way before using it and be careful to use tools (and not your hands!) when using as it spits out, well, really hot air. Comes with four nozzles, use the smallest size you can get away with – it helps avoid damaging other components if you are trying to isolate one part of the board while avoiding a connector, for example.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
