      One hint if (WHEN??) you buy the Hakko 808, spend a few bucks more and get that nice stand that is sold for it.  I nearly burned the table up before my brain kicked in and said "the heat is on all the time, dummy!!!"  The stand sells on Amazon for $25 or so, and it is NICE.  The 808 does come with a little asbestos (probably not, but similar) coat over a metal spring, so they don't ship them bare, but the stand is a worthy addition, IMHO.

      Hi Bill,

      I use a Hakko 808 desoldering kit, which one can buy on Amazon for about $200. You can read user reviews there, also. I”ve been very pleased with it.

      Well I can't let the "Super de-soldering gun" comment  from Torrey past. I have a Pace vacuum system for desoldering but always looking for something better. Jim, what is this de-soldering  device you are talking about?

      Ditto that Jim.  Not long after I saw you last, I bought that super de-soldering “gun” that you showed me in the case.  Can’t wait to use it once I change out the panel on my first SP II!


      Thanks Jim for the very nice panel upgrade!  My complete Collins station included the working KWM2-A is back up and running.  I will use the second SP II to switch from the KWM2-A station to the KWM-380 station to the Drake C-line.  I’m really excited about using my boat anchor gear again…for the first time in a long time!

      I received my panel yesterday! As a added bonus I ordered a desoldering tool that I wanted for sometime to assist in the refit.

      Thanks Jim,

      Been reading all the rave reviews….opened my package yesterday… WOW!!  The reviews are UNDERstated!!

      PS: Your excellent packing and box size paid off.  First time that I can remember that a medium PM box came through  really whacked with a major sized dent!

      As I opened the box I started breathing easier when I saw the large cocoon of bubble wrap.  Panel was unscathed.
