The Hakko FX-8804-CK Hot Tweezer Upgrade Kit: New Product Preview

American Hakko Products (Hakko) announced the FX-8804-CK Hot Tweezer Upgrade Kit as one of the first major add-ons for the FX-888 Soldering Station. Also available as individual parts, the kit contains the FX-8804 Hot Tweezers, FH-800 Tweezer Holder, the A1378 Tip, the A1559 Cleaning Sponge, and a Tip Alignment Block. All items will be available in a forthcoming release and can be pre-ordered from the QSource.com site.

The Hakko FX-8804-CK Hot Tweezer Kit resembles Hakko's 950-CK Hot Tweezer Kit, but the Tweezer Holder features the same blue color of the FX-888 Soldering Station and the unit has the proper connection and heaters for the FX-888. The FX-8804-CK Kit provides the FX-888 with the option for adding SMT repair and the ability to rework passive devices right out of the box using a variety of optional tip sets for a range of active SMT device repair.

The Q Source Resource will have more in-depth information about the FX-8804-CK Hot Tweezer Upgrade Kit in the coming days. The Q Source YouTube Channel will also feature videos about this new add-on for the Hakko FX-888 Soldering Station.
