I have a spare (used) UNGAR UTC-300 soldering iron station that includes a base with heat contol. It's an industrial model and can solder delicate electronics or assemble battery packs with out breaking a sweat. I got it as a spare and never needed it because the one I had originally still works great after 20 years.
These are one of the best irons ever made.
Let me know, PM if interested..

Heat gun you can pick up at harbor freight or Wally World for cheap. You don't need anything special.

I've been looking at these embossing heat guns. Will those work?

Never used an embossing heat gun. Like I was saying man. A cheap heat gun is all you need.
