Baku 702B soldering station – change your soldering iron head

BAKU 702B Soldering Station

BAKU 702B Soldering Station

I wrote a post about the baku 702B 6 month ago with my initial feedback after receiving it.

After 6 months, my feedback is good and the station works well. I just made 45 raspberry shields with it using the air flow and the soldering iron and it make the job.

Now it is time to change the soldering iron head. For sure its life has been short compare to my previous one from another brand. My fear was to find a compatible head as I saw none of them with the 702B reference.

The solution is to search for 936 – 937 station or Tip 900M, they all are the same and works well with the Baku 702B. Go on ebay and pay 1/2€ each ; you will also find different head type. I recommend to order some right after buying the station as they are coming from china (generally) and your need 2-3 week to get them.
