I’m in the market for upgrading my cheapo maplin soldering iron. I’m probably now thinking of going to a soldering station with smaller tips as I am doing more surface mount stuff. Any recommendations of what you use at home? Is the hackspace soldering station worth getting? I’ve used and it’s pretty good.
Thanks, you covered a range there. I wasn’t really sure what my budget is.
I’ll probably be going a for a cheaper one, as I am just getting into smd stuff and not sure how much I’ll be doing in the future.
I might just head down cheetham hill next weekend and see what they have.
I didn’t know the hackspace one was that expensive!
I finally got around to looking at the options and probably going to go for the hakko one. On eBay it’s either £50 or £100+ why the price difference and what should I be wary of? Is just one is genuine?
