Get a Desoldering station!

by Snowtroll

As you plan to do a lot of repairwork, a GOOD desoldering station may be a higher priority that a soldering station.

Handheld suction pumps and desoldering braids can only do so much, and among what they can do is completely ruin some printboards.

If money is a priority, get a desoldering station and a decent soldering iron which can be moved to the toolbox when you later get a proper soldering station.

The Hakko 808 seems to get decent reviews:
