I did, but not the one that Charper made. I ended up getting adesoldering gun (looking like a soldering iron, but has a desolderingrubber bulb attached to it, with the nozzle that is at right angles tothe main heating element) and modifying that instead. I couldn't get itto go hot enough to actually use it as a hot air soldering iron.

But I guess the error was on my side, I wasn't trying to use it withsoldering paste, I tried it with regular solder (the wire kind) and itdidn't work too well. I have a feeling it would have functioned betterwith the solder paste.
