Great product! It maintains temperature you set it at very accurately. Very reliable. Everything feels quality. You can't go wrong with this.
I am generally pleased with this soldering station. However I feel the design of the soldering iron cradle could be improved. As the soldering iron rest is only a partial circle, there is a tendency (with the weight of the lead), for the iron to slip out of position allowing the tip to come into contact with the plastic housing & melting it. A simple mod is all that is necessary to alleviate this situation.
Like the previous comments have suggested I too had trouble with the stand until I realised the rubberry finger guard was in the way, once its moved further up the handle its exactly as should be, again i agree get the extra tips if your working fine details or larger jobs
Very happy with this soldering iron station. very fast heat up time and very professional looking unit too... and it looks like it worth £200 kit. The iron tip is easy to keep clean not like some irons that burns flux and corrode quickly. I got it for repairing Freeview box power supplies and vintage tv sets.... Got it in the sale prices very cheap.
Comparable with much more expensive units. Very lightweight, soft flexy cable, heavy stand and fast heat-up. (But not as fast as the LCD says, that is the internal temperature, the iron is a tad cooler & slower!) The wobbly fit in the stand is easy to fix, just remove the finger guard, it isn't needed. Overall, an excellent unit at a great price. If you happen to catch it when a deal is on, go for it. Get a pack of bits too, the supplied one is a bit tiddly for most work. Even a replacement iron is a fantastic price, I got one for a faster tip change, just change the iron, no waiting for it to cool to change tip sizes. :)
This is a fantastic iron for the price - it is very sturdy and well built, with a convenient user interface and a small, lightweight iron with a thin and very flexible wire that doesn't get in the way. My only quarrel with it is the small thermal mass of the iron - the heater element is very thin and does not hold much heat, and there is not much connection between the tip and the heater and the tip sits very loose. This isn't a problem in practice, I have just used bigger ones before now so it was a bit of a learning curve to find the correct style to use this one.
Operating Instructions poor. Doesn't say temperature value must be in set mode to store, also doesn't explain why there is a calibration adjustment otherwise not a bad buy
Just purchased this item, comes up to temperature very quickly, very nice to use. With regards the holder issue, I simply removed the finger guard completely (no heat transfer so quite safe) the iron now fits the stand perfectly!
I bought this as a replacement for a failed Antec XS iron, for doing everything from SMT work up to fairly heavy soldering on cables and connectors, but am a bit disappointed with its performance. Like others, I've discovered that the stand is a very poor fit. However, if you remove the rubbery plastic grip on the iron then it fits the stand well. The stand is cast aluminium and does not have rubber (or even plastic) feet, so it's liable to slide around. The iron may be rated at 60W but the heat transfer from element to tip seems to be quite poor. Even cranked up to 450C it performs worse than the 25W Antex XS on anything that needs a bit of heat to make a good joint. It works well for small stuff and the temperature is easy enough to adjust, it just can't deliver the heat for bigger joints.
Very good soldering iron for the money, the problem with it not staying in it's stand is easy to solve by sliding the finger guard back 2 - 3 mm. Very fast heat up time, don't forget to get the spare tips, 3 different sizes are very handy to have.
