Hot air rework station recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for a half decent hot air soldering station?

I currently use a Ayoue soldering iron but sometimes makes a bit of a mess of the plastic on remote buttons so thinking of changing over to hot air.

Don't want to spend a fortune as I don't use it very often, but don't mind £150-£200 max.

Was looking at this one as it has a soldering iron attached as well.

If you are doing remotes and using Ayoue, I would recommend getting smaller tip for the iron rather than using hot air.

Also, sometimes hotter iron temp is better as it reduces contact time rather than slowly heating up everything. Use a good flux too. Worth playing with some old circuit boards if you dont solder much.
