Without this kind of tweezers tool I go with hot air in one hand and a soldering iron in the other one .. and I just move the latter one from one end to the other of that SMD component until it breaks free :lol:
Usually taking components off it's much harder than putting them back... well.. except BGA ones.. which currently are out of my reach :cry:

I see. The tip itself is about 100-130€, but you shure need a (special?) solderingstation from JBC. I am a bit confused which to buy. Prices start from 380€ up to 1.700€ :?

The full solution is too expensive for my taste, but I agree they do seem professional enough to maybe deserve that amount of money :P

A starting point would be CP-2QE which includes AM120-A Adjustable Micro Tweezers, but no "cartridges" (C120 cartridges type)... that can be found at about 500EUR... in a compact form.

If you try to build the same thing by buying the parts separately will take about 658EUR from your pocket:
PA-120A (Micro Tweezers)
DI-2D (1 Tool Control Unit )
AM-SA (Stand for AM120 & PA120 Micro Tweezers)

Looking again at Stevebe's gears I think that he is a salesman for JBC and infiltrated on this forum saying that he is interested in this Convers+ thing in order to gain some trust from us and after that, little by little, he will start selling this JBC products that seem pretty appealing :D :lol: :roll:

When you get to my age and you have been working in electronics as long as I have life does have its little perks, I primarily repair valve amplifiers
And build bespoke guitar amplifiers, then all this surface mount stuff started to invade my life so I thought I would look into making my life a little easier
So I invested in the best I could afford and believe me it was the best thing I ever did. Yeah it’s pricey but you only get what you pay for. :D

Who do you think would spend that much on gear hear,, ;)

Ps not certain where your looking for prices tweezer cartridges £31 each.
