Want to start microsoldering!
Hello everyone. I am 19, in college for Computer Support. However after repairing my own phone screen I realized a few months later that there was money to be made. Longtime story short I got a $800 credit line from PayPal, which I used on phones and tools. I managed to flip a decent amount of phones so far. I’d say the value of all the phones, cash, and tools/parts I have is about $1350 now after about 6 weeks. And any penny I make goes right back into phone repair! I learned a LOT in that time, and I feel pretty comfortable inside an iPhone. I feel comfortable doing just about any hardware replacement.
I absolutely love doing this and I’d love to turn this side business into a serious one eventually. I don’t think I could manage to make enough with normal hardware fixing, so Iv decided I need to learn microsoldering to have a chance at making it. In addition no repair shop around does micro work on iPhone boards. So it would give me a very big edge and no competition. I understand there’s a LOT to learn, I’m not saying I want a shop open next week or even year.
My question is for experienced micro solders. If you had to start over, with no tools and roughly $1200. How would you use it for tools? I understand that budget can easily be blow out if the water, but I don’t want to waste my time on a $150 “4in 1” station. So if you had $1200 (roughly, give or take a few hundred) what would you buy? Used is okay to me also! Definitely going to get a used microscope for sure.
