The Rework Station is essential for fixing where you messed up during the fabrication process. Consisting of an Air Bath, Air Pencil, and Air Pick, the Rework Station allows you heat up a specific area of the PCB and make modifications, whether that means adding/removing some solder on the pads, rotating a component, or completely replacing a component. Other tools are available for similar purposes, such as a desoldering gun, and an additional heat gun for larger components.

What is the Rework Station?
The rework station is a collection of tools used for heating up printed circuit boards to remove surface mount components or touch up soldering jobs. The tools vary from a board heater, to very precise pin-point heating tools.
PCB - Printed Circuit Board
SMD - Surface Mount Device
SMT - Surface Mount Technology
Heat Gun- A soldering iron-like tool that blows out hot air through a variable sized hole (often variable through interchangeable tips).
Helping Hands - A tool that grabs onto your PCB with little clips.
Soldering - The process of melting a tin-lead compound of metal to secure pins and leads of electronic components onto the terminals of a printed circuit board.
