Hello, I had been using weller wes51 for a few years. I love it. Unfortunately, it finally stopped working last week. Does not look like it is fixable at this point. Now, I am looking for a new soldering station. I may go for weller wesd51. But, I came across the weller wd1001 here, http://www.whichsolderingstation.com/weller-wd1001-soldering-station-review/ The panel looks great. But, it is lot more expensive than wesd51. I have not shopped for soldering station for a while. How come the soldering station could be this expensive nowadays? Not sure if any of you have used it before. Any input would be appreciate it. Thank you very much.
