Hello.

I need to find some hot air gun/station but I don't need anything too fancy. I have seen prices ranging from 30€ up to 4000€ or so.
I don't want the cheapest but don't need the most expensive.

If there are no really cheap solutions up to 60€ or so, I would go up until 150€ or 160€. I mean, my budget would be around 160€ for a known brand or at least reputed brand. If there is nothing worth of any the most known brands, than, I would go for least known brands but yet capable of doing decent jobs.

I found a few less less known brands in some sites:

https://www.electronicshub.org/best-hot-air-rework-stations/
https://besttenreview.com/best-hot-air-rework-stations/

Anything interesting there up to 90€ or so?

I also found this one:

But would like to know other opinions/suggestions!

Thanks
Psy

Most of the these models mentioned here are a bit off of my budget, I guess.

Need to think about this a bit more.

I am into DIY, have you considered trying to make one?
I don't have any experience. I'm just a newbie in this world and obviously that would be quite a task for me.
I am also considering to build a small UPS on my own, so, one step at a time.

But for now, I think I really need this tool, either to be able to do dessoldering of SMD components and also to pratice and be able to keep doing small projects so that I can learn and get some experience.
