    Hello guys,

    I was browsing eBay (looking for solder - yay!), and I came across this interesting thing.

    What is this?
    What's it used for?
    How does it work?

    It says it's from the Multicore company, Solders Vaporette (water cooled).

    What the heck is it? :confused:

    Thanks! :)

    At first glance I thought someone had come up with a posh name for magic smoke. I have no idea what that is, for catching and condensing solder fumes? But that wouldnt take 350W.....

    Googling indicates that this is a device for soldering SMD devices. A fluorcarbon is boiled to give a hot vapour and the circuit board is placed in this. The surplus vapour is condensed with water cooling. The temperature is closely controlled by the boiling point.
