Aoyue 936 Solder Station Variable Temperature Control | eBay this is the same? Buying from America wont happen, shipping costs way too much. But ebay.co.uk is OK and also amazon.co.uk

It was cheap, that's for sure. Is it temperature controlled?

I have the same model, the 936 is quite alright but it is really essential to keep the tip clean and freshly tinned, as with every iron I suppose. There is temperature control, albeit via an analog dial, and I can hardly tell whether that is all too accurate. Over time I got used to various settings depending on the task at hand.

There is a newer model with digital temperature control. Those have a reputation of tighter regulation, i.e. once you touch a large mass of copper with the tip it will quickly react, whereas the analog counterparts have a much larger temperature drop before they turn the heat back on. One is easily tempted to dial in a higher temperature, which is not always too healthy for the more sensitive parts involved. For casual use and ordinary PCB work though, the 936 is really good value and leaves not much to be desired.

Kind regards,
Chris

Thanks! First step would be to gather component footprints and exact board dimensions of the existing O2 project if RocketScientist or anyone else has them and start to modify and add new footprints for an SMT version. After that, I can simply re-create the schematic and annotate it into a PCB project using Altium's software.

Oh, a silly question.
I have removed the gain resistors for a 1x gain, but is there any way to get even less gain?
For low level evening listening I still find myself having the volume control all way to the bottom almost which means I get a little channel imbalances.

I've started a crowdfunding project for some nice SS front panels if anyone is interested.

I love the idea!

I bought one, and hope that more of you do the same to make this great idea a reality!



Come on, everyone, support the community!!
