BUMP FOR A SMOKIN DEAL!

and if it's smoking, you're probably resting it on some plastic or something.

That's pretty cheap for the Weller, but is the Weller worth twice as much as this one?

I have that model and I don't have any significant gripes about it. I dare say for $30 it's quite awesome. I've considered picking up a second one just to keep in the garage so I don't have to clear off my desk upstairs whenever I want to solder something. Can't imagine you'd need a significantly better station for typical hobbyist use.

wow, even this is only $50.


I'd much rather have that station than mine...I bought the WLC-100, but the wand died after a few weeks, so I'm back to my trusty $7 RS iron.
