    No Laughing..!! I mean it.

    I was just soldering and that bloody thing fell off....
    I was like Son Of a ....:eek:.

    It was the tip that broke, I mean the whole thing is the tip. Unlike other irons, this one's tip is different.
    The whole metal part u see is the tip, just pul it outnd put a nother one in...simple. ..One problem.........It's the only one I got for now..

    Now I feel like both of my legs are gone..I got no way to solder.
    Even to make a iron I need an iron :D....

    Man.....**** Happens..

    Oh, didn't you read the owner's manual? The tops of those tips are soldered on using 50/50 tin/lead solder. So, you have to keep the temperature just right, if you want it to stay in one piece. :D

    That's surprising for a Hakko station, they aren't cheap rip-offs...

    I've never had that happen with a soldering iron but I've had the entire tip assembly come off the iron's heater, luckily it screwed back on (possibly not fitted properly at the factory.)

    I had an iron break altogether once.
    I just sat and stared at my circuits for a good 20 minuets...

    Do you have a desoldering iron that could be used as a soldering iron?
    I did that once by removing the desoldering tip and wrapping a normal tip in pie-pan material so it fit.

    350 is hot I know, But I think it is due to the crack that was there I had to use higher temps. It does not work at 300 or low.

    And no, I do not have a Hakko near by dummy.

    and yes, it is discontinued, but I can get use if I get the T12 series with a nipple.

    I just cannot find any link or seller in the US like the site says.

    Does any one have the store next to ur neighborhood or somethin.

    I can send money via paypal if it is not too much to put one or two in an UPS envelope and drop it my way

    I have called Sy, waiting for his reply. I will PM you as soon as I know the answers to provide. I am going to see if he will accept paypal so you can order your parts.

    Talked with Sy Creed today concerning your unit. There is a slight problem, was a patient infringement with the 942 and Hakko discontinued making the unit, nothing for this unit is available in the USA. I know you said something about the price.

    Sy said he would give 50 off a FX951 making the price 200.00. If you like this unit and can afford it all you have to do is call/email Hammond Electronics in Florida. They will honor this price.

    I am getting ready to upgrade my equipment, I can also see what he will do in a package deal if you like.
