Using the modified REXC100 pre-heater and Aoyue hot air station with 38mm by 38mm BGA nozzle from Allendale Electronics.
I just needed a BGA for other tests and this procedure would normally be carried out with vulnerable components removed and foil shielding in place.

As usual the thermocouples let the side down as did my poor positioning of them.
Next time I will use one underneath the PCB from the pre-heater or perhaps put it on the top again but shield it from the hot air flow.

I am also going to make up some new thermocouple holders that come in at a much lower angle so they are not in the way.
