Broken desoldering gun - delay on electrical service

Rate this Entry

After years of usage, unfortunately, my trusted desoldering gun decided to take long holiday.

It happened at the most inconvenient timing.

I have been servicing this head unit for a while now.

It had shorted circuit to the case GND as well as other issues on the circuit board.

l have other units waiting for the service plus a few owners contacting me for sending their A/C CCU board.

In a hope to repair the desoldering gun, inspected it but nothing works.

Neither temperature control (stays cold), nor vacuum pump operation.

Looks like the control board IC died.

Thought about getting something available with immediate delivery in UK but just don't know good make/model.

Will be getting the same one from Japan or similar price tag one from Hakko Japan.

Due to this sudden failure, there will be about 10 - 14 days delay in electrical service.

Apology for those waiting for my service.

    Replacement arrived and now back in business.

    Already tested using my NSX for over 50miles and returned the unit to the owner.

    Not something you would see everyday.
