New Hot Air Rework Station - NT-861DW / "Quick" (not Quick!) 761DW
« on: September 24, 2019, 07:04:27 am »
Finally somebody made a Quick clone, but with rotary controls  :-+

This is brand new on the market, so no reviews as of yet. It would be nice to update / link to those here in the top post. Along with any other photos or relevant information about it.

Some seller listings where you can find it:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/223551448341

Not sure about the quality, at all. Could be good. Could be bad  :-//

"Quick Clones" not really... only 700 watt vs Quick's 861DW 1000 watt.

Quality of the plastics looks horrific, but maybe thats just the odd color they've chosen.

Not sure why you'd want this when the 1200W Best BST-863 can be had for the same price ($170): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32958682640.html
700W is barely above a typical 858D, which is good enough for the vast majority of work, but yeah not really on the level of a clone as Deus says.

edit: here is one listing where its a bit cheaper ($140): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32958869681.html but thats still not enough to justify it.

Because this thing has rotary dials for the user to control the temperature and air flow. Wheras the BST doesn't and has a touch screen instead. This is an aspect which is also missing from the Quick too.

The thing is that you are correct that the BST station is a better quality product. Which is why several months ago I emailed a representative at BST company and specificall asked them to make those changes for their BST-863. To improve it into a future product. Ditto. Didn't hear back from them or anything. So for all we know, they might never end up doing that. So what is the way forward here?

Personally I would very much like to see if there is any reasonable potential to mod the BST-863's user interface. So that we can install rotary encoders as dials and bypass that touch screen. However since many people buy this thing specifically for doing their most important and critical (or money earning) daily work. There is not much motivation to do that, if it means potentially taking the machine out of action, giving up work time, or risking breaking the machine. Which is kindda why doing such a mod is also a stupid idea.

So what ends up happening? Some other company sees the opening in the market, and makes what the user is actually requesting. But it is probably a lower quality product.  :-//
