My opinion is that the cheap dual stations dont do either purpose very well. You're much better off getting the cheap hot air separate.I hope this is the right place for this question. I'm buying the necessary tools mentioned in the description of the G-Boy in the Bitbuilt Store. Now I was wondering, could I get away with buying just the Atten AT8586 rework station? Instead of buying Hakko FX-888D/Weller WE1010 AND an Atten 858D?
Excited to get my G-Boy!!!
Thanks so much.There’s not very much, software side besides installing Portablizemii. Because of the G-Boy kit’s streamlined design, the build time is relatively quick compared to other portables. I’d say it would take a week or two for a beginner to build one.
EDIT: There is a video on Bitbuilt‘s youtube channel about how to install Portablizemii
