  • 50W Variable Temperature Soldering Station
    fantastic soldering station
    Review by borgchick
    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.
