The 50W Variable Temperature Soldering Station includes 110V base station, iron, iron holder, and brass sponge. Manufacturer can't say enough good things about this iron - set the iron temp to 350º C and forget it This is a great step up from the basic soldering stations from Radio Shack or wherever you picked up a cheap iron because your last one broke right in the middle of a project. The red LED on the front will be constantly on while the iron is heating up. Then the LED will start to pulse slowly (on for around three seconds, off for around three seconds, repeat). This LED indicates that the iron has reached and is maintaining a constant temperature.

fantastic soldering stationReview by borgchickBack to top
I use to be terrible at soldering, while skill certainly has a lot to do with it, having a good soldering iron also helps. With adjustable temperature control, rapid iron heat up, good stand and great looks, this iron really has it all.
I did end up getting a fatter tip for it, for most of the through hole soldering I do, the fatter tip makes it so easy and fast.
One slight annoyance with this iron is the holder for the brass sponge, it doesn't really hold it well, so when using it, you kinda have to hold the the gold coloured cover with your other hand as you stick the iron inside to clean the tip.
