Guide: Home Made Air Pencil Soldering Iron

Quote
One of my previous guides here was on modifying the CVS camcorder to allow users to download movies made with it to their home computers. During the early stages of this project, it was necessary to remove the memory chip from the camcorder and then surface-mount it on a different PCB to read the chip without killing it. Luckily, a way was developed to access the memory chip via USB, but I decided that it was time for me to take a closer look at ways to improve my soldering.

That's pretty neat.  Were you able to solder that opto on without it burning up?

Yes I was able to do that. I just need to pick up a 1 cap from the Shack and get my LED's that I ordered and I should be finished with the 2nd run of this circuit board.

Very nice, I'll give it a try whenever I see a cheap desoldering iron like that one. ;)

I haven't seen one of those over here, just the expensive ones.

this would have come in handy when i was overclocking my dreamcast, and accidentally broke a pin on the clock control chip with my bulky radioshack iron.
