AOYUE Int 853A++ Programable Quarts Preheater

This device is used to heat up a populated printed circuit board prior to removing or replacing surface mount components. This is very helpful when the components pads are beneith the package and not exposed where a soldering iron tip can directly heat them.

Care should be taken to not heat any devices on the board above their maximum temperature limits.

Do not place flammable items on the heater!
