    I’d be way too scared to use a cheap hot air gun from China. Burns are one of if not the worst type of injury you can have. Even though I have two fire extinguishers and eight smoke alarms in my apartment I still wouldn’t feel comfortable operating this at my home.

    I’m looking into BGA rework stations at the moment but fear that this time I won’t get around a cheap model from China as professional ones are just way too expensive.
