Hot air is great for reworking stuff, without doubt ... but for assembling I prefer the good ol' iron + flux + wick technique.
For assembling you need some really good quality solder paste, which usually isn't cheap.

Considering this thread is already borderline with the admins (I did ask before opening this thread or rather as it developed) since the sale/wanted section was removed for a reason. I'm going with Synoptic's and 640k's opinion as well.

I have a few questions about this project: Is there a difference between the GUSAR Lite and the ARGUS? Have there been any schematics released for any of these, or is this still a closed project? It would be really cool to add one of these to my build, but if the project is still in limbo, I may just have to go with an original GUS.

The ARGUS is the design that is being discussed in this thread, while the GUSar designs were not-so-welcome derivatives of ARGUS based on the schematics that were released for an earlier prototype revision. The GUSar Lite is a somewhat feature-reduced version, while there is another board that is supposed to be roughly equivalent to the ARGUS. Without having looked at the other designs, I can't say for sure that they are truly functional equals. It is worth pointing out that we are trying to keep discussion of non-ARGUS designs to a bare minimum, lest we suffer the wrath of the forum moderators; if you must ask about or discuss the GUSar designs, please do it in a thread dedicated to that topic.

The schematics for an earlier-revision ARGUS prototype are presumably still available in this thread. They were immensely useful to my understanding of the ARGUS design, but because of the appearance of the knock-offs, we are unlikely to see schematics for subsequent (meaning current-generation) revisions.

Testing of the release candidate boards is on-going. Following that, the final boards will be ordered and made available to the original donors and contributors. After that production run, shock__ may use his remaining stock of InterWave ICs to make boards generally available.

Who will add Mitsumi, Sony and MKE intefaces to the interwave clone board first? 😀

Hopefully nobody.

In 2020, I doubt the number of people who would use such a "feature" is particularly high; certainly not enough to warrant the increase in cost per board. For ARGUS, we're mainly at the fix-it-if-it's-broken stage; feature changes are exceptionally unlikely at this point, especially for something like this.
