AOYUE T002? what is it useful for?
« on: November 29, 2020, 03:17:23 pm »

Aoyue T002

Probably a "silly" question for pro guys here, I am in the process of buying some new soldering iron tips for my Aoyue Station, and got a -20% discount for the T002, but I haven't yet understood this product.

What is it useful for?

What it says on the side, they're SMD rework tweezers, handy for removing passives.

It is mostly a gimmick. If it comes in a box - fine, otherwise - don't waste moeny.

I find the Pace ones I have really useful if I'm doing a lot of SMD rework or working on a packed board, ymmv of course, everyone has their own preference with tools.

I have one of these Aoyue SMD tweezers.  Don't waste your money on it.  My experiences with it:

- Takes forever to heat up compared to an iron.

- The hinges have a lot of play and the tips don't meet up consistently.

- The tips have a long taper and don't transfer heat very well.  Unsoldering parts connected to significant copper paths can be difficult to impossible.

- The two heaters are slightly different in heat output, resulting in different temperatures for the two tips.

I've reverted to the method of using two irons, one on either side of the component, or a wide tip to get both sides at the same time, or hot air depending on the situation.  The tweezers looked like a good solution, but bad implementation.
