That looks like a nice iron. I have also been looking for a good one like that. But for $39.99?! That is unbeleiveable! I'd say go ahead and buy it and let us know how it goes. I am also very interested in it too!

thats why 40$ is cheap!!! but im worried the tip wont last for sh*t Or the iron... It looks exactly like a hakko but like cheaper material but it could just be the pic. The hakko 936 is 69.99$ So that why i want feedback on this before i purchase im not in for losing 40$ if its junk. But it can also be great

It looks like a quality iron to me. I might end up getting one. They have replacement tips, and the lifespan of a tip really relies on how well you take care of it. It doesn't look cheap to me really.

They work very well. Several of us have these irons and so far everyone has been happy with them.

At that price what have you got to loose? Also buy over $50 from them and receive a FREE digital multimeter.

For this low price, I'm sure it doesn't work as good as a Hakko... My bro-in-law bought one that looks very similar to this and the function is the same with the Hakko. However, it took almost twice as long to heat up and the heat didn't stay as long on certain temparatures... It'll be good for regular soldering jobs though...

Yeah, I probably won't end up spending $50 anyways, but I was just wondering what it was for. I'll probably buy that Station and an extra tip or two.

I have this station and it's ok for light duty work. I broke the iron by putting too much pressure on it. If it were me i wouldn't buy another one, i'd go for a higher quality iron.
