Hello again. I am currently looking for a quality soldering station for my home lab. I have been saving for a while for it, so you can suggest at will that will later sort through the cost. Here are the terms: - needs to be temperature-controlled (most people say to get the digital type) - i intend on only using lead-free stuff (high melting point, ~230C vs ~185C for 60/40) - i'm not doing proninja work here, just hobbyist (though i would like to further on to make quality projects) - while it is for soldering stuff, i like to scavenge components from old (or not so old) equipment, so it must be adequate for desoldering - i don't do SMD/T, just through-hole So far i have seen lots of recommendations regarding the: - Weller WD1002 (the WESD51 is not suitable for lead-free): http://www.cooperhandtools.com/brands/CF_Files/model_detail.cfm?upc=037103215475 - Hakko 937 (with 907 iron) (the 936 uses a rotary switch for temp control and the 938 has 100W power, vs 50W): http://www.hakko.com/english/products/hakko_938.html - Xytronic 137ESD: http://www.xytronic.com/pi/p-137esd.htm (The Hakko gets glowing recommendations in a series of reviews/posts across the web, even more than the Wellers.) What do you recommend?
