Tax return is in. I am tired of my pencil iron so im wondering thoughts on a handful of irons.

I know tari suggested the hakko fx888d

Went looking on amazon to see what else was out there. So just looking for thoughts.

Kendal 2 in 1 Hot air/solder pen station

Aoyue-9378 Digital station

I bought mine new. It works well for the price: I also bought some fine tips. It's ideal for soldering the TI-83 inorder to replace the faulty ribbon connector. I have also used it for fine PCB work but also needed a hobby magnifying glass to go with it.
Ended up with the Kendal. The hot air really suits my interests as of late and will be fun to have.
I recently unboxed a Weller WESD51 (Digital version). It should be pretty handy for working with new alloys.

Since we're discussing our current hardware, I'm very happy working with a precise digital Aoyue Int2900, which tops out around 70 Watts and runs about $100.
