Default Hakko Irons?

I was looking through my electronic catalog and found a massive section on the hakko soldering irons...seems like thats what you guys use mostly so what are good prices on the tips and the station? The station in my book is 79.65 and the tips are 5.32...those good prices? I looked on stormer hobbies site and they got it for 100 bucks for teh station and like15 for a tip!!! ..i didnt know if they were just high or what but its the same model (936) as i see in most pictures but it isnt white its black

Go to Kiesub.com It is a electronic wholesaler. The hakko 936 shipped to your door for 69.95. It comes with the pencil tip so get the larger broad tip for rc applications. The tips range from 4.99 to 7.99.

Be sure to get the model that comes with the 908 iron...936-12 is the part# I think.

I the black Hakko that is shown is the ESD safe unit. For advertising purposes, they show the black unit. The 936 is white. It's a great iron.

HI

The only diffrence between the white and black ones is the fact that the balck one is esd safe (I dont know what it means but its suposed to be an extra feature, something about static protection.) I got mine from an electrioncs distributor and it is black. the only place I have seen the white one is in hobby shops. the 907 iron with the big tip will work but I would recomend the 908 iron insted, just make shure you get the right part # when ordering, I Didnt and got a 907

The guy were I bought mine told me that the white one was discontinued and the only way to get the white one is if the place you are buying it from has it in stock.I have the black one and it works great.

The ESD safe unit is used for working on circuit boards. It is safer to use it if you think you'll be working on computer motherboards and or esc's boards....things like that. Nothing wrong with it just different.

yeah esd is electrostatic discharge. It just means the unit is grounded so it doesnt build up static. Static is bad for electronics as most know. If you want the ULTIMATE soldering station let me know!! I can save you 150 bucks!! LOL yeah..save you more than a bad ass soldering iron cost. Look at it....Weller 7000

You can find the 936-13 around the same price.....

GOOGLE is a good thing

FYI: get a couple extra tips when you buy also....

ESD => electric static discharge, its for no-static areas, not really needed unless you are inside of your electronics.
