Tweezers I have, but I could do with a decent hands-free magnifier and item in the link seems to be just the thing. The price isn't bad until the p&p is added on and that takes it above the £15 inclusive price for vat and Royal Mail charges which would add around another £15 on top if the seller declared the full price on the package. I'll have to search around. A hot air station is something I'd like to have, but I couldn't justify the cost. It would open up a new world though.
Your mod job is much neater than mine :-)
You can find sellers from China selling the same magnifier. It has worked really well for me. I also use a photographer's loupe to inspect the finished work more closely.
I got an 852D+ hot air station for $55. It's a combo hot air + soldering iron station. When I was researching, I almost bought the Aoyue 852A++ for more than double this price due to its good review. Good thing I didn't, as this one has worked quite well for me. Make sure to check the differences in the units when you buy. The same model number can have some variations of what comes with it.
prices change and sellers come and go, so shop around.
