220 dollar IR reflow oven
Picked up this infrared reflow oven for 1400 rmb, about 200 bucks, in Shenzhen. It isn’t the at923 (or whatever) that shows up on eBay for $300, and lacks the viewing window. Comes highly recommended by Dimitri at SmARtMAKER, and seemed better built than the other one which was available at the stand next door. Still only two or tubes but the center area is even over the space of at least the eagle minimum size.
Also bought a hotplate for 300rmb, about 45 bucks. Also a metal solder paste squeegy to use with the boards and stencil on the way from Hackvana.This entry was posted in #liveupdates, Global Geek and tagged hot plate, it reflow oven, Shenzhen.
