    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    The tool works great for removing IC's along with a hot air station. Well made and has a durable feeling. As others have said, the tips are true, connecting evenly with each other, and on tiny parts. I use this to not only remove surface mount components, but to align them on circuit boards and it works much better than the straight x-acto blade method I used before these arrived. They don't appear to be easily magnetized or allow parts to stick to them due to static or surface area. The price cannot be beat. My co-worker said he paid ten bucks for his set.

    Cons:

    No good place to mount lasers.

    OtherThoughts:

    If the whole electronics repair thing doesn't work out, maybe I can use them to be a backyard amateur surgeon.

    Bottomline:

    If you work with surface mount components, professionally or for fun, pick a set up.
