I personally use a 80watt iron with a nice chisel tip, and build beautiful packs over and over with no problems.....

The Hakko 936 is rated at 60W, CSI is a 40W station.

Here is a quick test I did with the CSI & Hakko


Quick break down of some basic test.
..............................Hakko CSI
cold to Low Temp. 16sec 21sec
It looks like Hakko OEM, under $40 can't beat that. Even the Digital one is only $50.00 WOW..

Well, I am using Metcal from cold to max is under 5 sec....

If I don't have the Metcal, I will get the one from the link - cheap
