Hot air rework stations?

(1/10) > >>

I wanted a rude username but failed:
Looking at maybe getting one of the rework stations but I wanted to know if there's anything other than the 885D that's more reliable / safer around the $200 AUD mark?

If not, is it very hard to make the 858D safer? I don't really messing with thing's connected directly to the mains.

Thanks.

What have you found unsafe about the 858D?

Just search this forum. Horror stories aplenty, commonest being putting the fuse in the Neutral and lousy/non-existent earth bonding of the metalwork. It's a problem because there are a lot of clones, unbranded or sold under brand names that give you no guarantee that it's made by the manufacturer whose name is on the front.

For instance, genuine WEP brand ones are well made, have decent quality parts and have no issues at all  - I know because I have one. Yet I've seen photos of WEP branded 858D's that are potentially lethal and have a construction quality that suggests that they will last a few hours of use and no more. I highly doubt that those were actually made by WEP.
