Fry's also has a plethora of Hakko stuff. Best if you can go to a store, but if not their online site is www.outpost.com

We've had good experiences from this place. They also carry the conversion kit to convert the 907 iron to the 908 iron (#908-CK)...good for those who purchase the wrong version of the 936 by accident.

I've been using a 907 iron without a problem, but that 907 to 908 conversion looks pretty good. I was contemplating getting a 908 iron and putting a fine tip on my 907 and a big tip on the 908 so I'd just have to do a quick iron swap when I do batteries.

I was surprised at the difference between the 907 and 908 for RC purposes...and I had the biggest tip you could fit on the 907. The conversion kit comes with a standard chisel tip. I later upgraded to the big chisel tip, which is awesome for soldering batteries, Orion V2's, etc.
