USB Microscope

I got myself an Andonstar USB microscope of eBay and must admit that I’m pretty impressed with the resolution and magnification.

Giving away my soldering station

As I have upgraded my soldering station and have no need for my old one, I’m giving it away.

It’s a TIN-U 936 60W (an eBay HAKKO 936 copy) soldering station. It works great and I have had no problems with it.

It is for 220V !

Anyone interested and are willing to pay for the shipment can send me a PM and I will select a winner at random.
The offer will end 1 september 2013

PS. I live in Norway
