Default Soldering Iron stations

Hey guys after about 6 years of use my Ungar UTC 300 soldering station went kaput on me. So I was looking around for a new station and did not feel like paying 100 bucks for a new station like the Hakko 936 that alot of people use. So after some internet browsing I found this site http://www.web-tronics.com/index.html and I found this Iron here http://www.web-tronics.com/cispdeesdsas.html Well I got it the other day and to my surprize it looks alot like the Hakko 936 the box it came in was even the same style as the Hakko and even had 936 printed on the white box just like Hakko. So I did some checking and it looks like its almost the exact same station as the Hakko 936 but for a lot less. Here is the Hakko link to the 936 so you can look for your self and check the spec's. http://www.hakko.com/itnl/products/936.html

So if anyone is looking for a new Iron station check these guys out.

How's the station working so far? You should pop open the casing of the one you got and one that's marked Hakko and see what it looks like. Hehe.

I tired it out today and it worked fine. I will compair it this weekend to a Hakko at the track and see if there is any real differance. The only thing I can see being not the same from the two by looking at the spec's is the Hakko uses 60w's of power with the CS uses 40w's and the both have same temp ratings. Both tips have the same amount of resistance.....what this means I dont know.

Tom....it comes with a real fine point tip it works but the bigger tip is better for most RC related stuff. Im not 100% sure yet if I will be up at Scotties or not but if I am stop by and check it out. The bigger tip is only like 4 bucks I will post the part number when I get home from work.

Jayco....ok the CS one Im talking about comes with the stand and even a sponge( ). Glowing red is cool I bet you can light a cig off of that sucker. I would have to use one to make a call on how it works but if you say it works good awesome thats just another one to tell oter people about.

The tq-95 is only 15 watts though. Soldering batteries recommends at least 60 watts.

15 watts at idle. 150 watts when you press the button. That should be enough.

If you are outdoors and trying to solder and have problems try taking some alum foil and wrap it around your iron stand. This will keep the wind off of the iron and keep it hot. I know allot of you guys allready know this but just thought I would shoot it out their
