Well, I FINALLY got my iron. The customer service at circuit specialists was great. They shipped out the iron the day after I ordered it, and the shipping was pretty fast.

To the iron now! It is very easy to set up and get going, and it heats up FAST because of the ceramic element. The iron comes with a small, almost "needle" tip, so you will need to get the 3.2mm (or bigger, depending on what you wan) chisel tip. Overall, it works great, and I love it. I would consider it the best iron out for the money. It is the same as the Hakko 936, but only uses 40 watts of power instead Hakko's (claimed) 50 watts. I would recommend this iron to anyone needing a soldering station.

Let me know if anyone has any questions about it.

Goot TQ-95 iron is 35.00. It is by far the best soldering iron I have used.. 150 watts of power. I have a Weller WTCPT station that is now in retired. And Weller is new. Reason, It is easier to pack my TQ-95 to the track than Weller station. Hack if anyone want Weller WTCPT station I'll make you a very good deal.

The easiest solder to use in 63/37 because of lower melting points. There is Dean silver solder. It works fine. I use Acer silver solder for batteries. It's a little harder to use because of a higher melt point than 63/37. But when you have a iron like a TQ-95. I have no problem with Acer solder.

I have the TQ-95 too. My circuit specialties station is now a paper weight.

It sure is. I am really loving it. Still heats up as hot and as fast as it always did. I would still recommend it. It has been the best $35 I have spent in a while.
