This is our second to last post in our Hakko free shipping promotion. Today we’ll focus on the Hakko FM-204 Desoldering Station. In electronics, “desoldering” is the removal of solder and components from a circuit for troubleshooting, for repair purposes, component replacement, and to salvage components.

The Hakko FM-204 is a self-contained desoldering station with all the soldering functionality of the FM-203 in a single port station.

Features

  • Built in vacuum pump
  • Temperature range: 200°C – 450°C (400°F – 840°F)
  • Quick-change composite nozzles (N3 Series)
  • Gun or pencil style desoldering handpiece
  • Sleep mode functionality
  • Nozzles are not included

Note: THe FM-204 is a “Single Port” station, meaning only ONE handpiece can be used at at time. (You cannot use the soldering handpiece and desoldering handpiece at the same time.)
