A dessolering station is very useful to repair circuit boards and salvage electronic component. Unfortunately, they are also expensive, so I decided to build my own one from cheap parts.

For the most important part, the vacuum pump, I will use a cheap 12V mini compressor modified to plug a tube on the air intake. I also changed the motor for a slower and quieter one :

The white part of the base is printed in soft PLA to absorb vibrations.

For the irons, I will use 2 Wellman VTDESOL3 :

One will be plugged on the intake and the other on the air output to dessolder SMD components and heat heat shrink tubes.

For the moment, I test the vacuum pump :

Somewhat in line with your project here. Seed has a open source soldering station PCB. I am trying to build it my self for a side project.

I think dangerous prototypes designed it.

I'm on my cell or I would post a like now.
