Yihua 716C Tweezers (clone of JBC C120) $270
« on: July 02, 2024, 11:09:22 pm »
Yihua has gone full clone mode, they have a variety of JBC type stations: 982, 982D 245, 982-III 115. But the ones relevant here:

982D-I $270:
- 90W
- Built in thermocouple for calibration

or 982D-III $400:
- C210 + C120 tweezer
- 210W total

Downsides: proprietary circular connector, also the station seems to be completely dedicated for tweezer use. Its not clear if it can actually detect handpiece variations, maybe the C210/C245 one can though.

Still way too expensive for budget tweezers, but at least it means some C120 clone tips could become more common:
I assume the tweezer handpiece also fits C210 tips as the dimensions are the same? Maybe someone can offer a handle and just run the tips in parallel, as handskit did with T12.

The 716C tweezer is available separately and fits both C120 and C210. I'd like to see a JBC compatible open source project support tweezer attachments like it. Ideally, it would be a station with memory presets just for the tweezers and dual independent calibrated channels that sense and drive each cartridge of the tweezer separately. That should take care of any thermocouple issues while running cartridges in parallel during unbalanced thermal load. I could make an adapter for my Aifen A902 dual station that does the same thing, but constantly swapping plugs between iron handles and tweezers isn't the most efficient workflow.
