Hello,
Having years experience with ordinary size electronics and making a few SMD projects using a fine tip and the soldering iron, I would like to enter the field of SMD reworking using a real station. I guess when I do that, there will be no turning back to the ordinary size components, unless for prototypiong/hobbying or when there is no smd equivalent.

I would like to propose me some good solutions for an smd rework station, from your experience.
I consider all these things that you have learned from your experience with these machines.
I would like to avoid cheap chinese market products, I prefer to wait more time to buy something more expensive, if it can just do the job.
I am delighted of this video from Pace https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0wI-5YZQm4
Please propose me some good brands (not chinese), like pace, antex, weller and better ones and also models if possible.
My budget is no more than $1000-$1500 and that is the maximum I can afford for the best station I can find. Second hand is ok as long as it is in really good shape.

BTW I have found a weller wrs1000 at a good price <$250 . does it worth it for a discontinued product?
