I have been looking at the Wellers with the digital temp control for quite a while and it seems to be the general consensus and also what my research has cropped up.
I think I will get some desolder braid and a desolder pump. They're relatively inexpensive.
If I were to grab a soldering iron for a toolbox. Any recommendations? How would I spot out cheap ones that will go bad on me or lead to hot irons.?
