    This seller is selling the station but about the filters he is selling them separately (outside e-bay) i do not know if i can trust him about that. Where could i find theese kind of filters ?

    In 40 year I have soldered about 10 times.
    Use $2.00 desolder wick. and $5.00 desolder gun

    Colin has a point

    I have used desoldering station, but only when I have masses of desoldering to do
    and unless you are in a commercial situation, it's a bit of a occasionally used luxury item ;)

    solder wick is my main go-to for desoldering a few components here and there

    as far as that particular station goes, haven't seen one before, had no idea what they are like for reliability

    Yes i understand. It is just that some times i come across components that just dont want to get of the board with just a simple solder suck tool...

    I desolder allthe time because i salvage components from old boards but still that is not the reason i want to get a station. The true reason it that i think it is usefull when it comes to sensitive components or even sensitive PCB's

    Howdy Constantine, gotta get me one of those soon.
    It does look like a real treat. As Dave said, a luxury..:)

    Yes, true but today i had to replace a broken sata connector on a PCB. Guess what ! without the station it would be a real pain in the *, now it just took me 5 min and no damage to the boards.
