Unlike most people here, I didn't get this to repair phones, but got it for a compact station to work on small projects and keep items organized.

I love the storage parts boxes on the top left, and they are perfect for keeping screws and small drill bits.

The magnetic section on the right is good for those small

I really like this mat. Because it is a bit tacky it keeps the project in place. This makes it much easier to solder components because I don't have to chase the PCB around the work surface. I use one of the screw pockets as a gel flux holder which makes it more convenient to both clean the soldering tip and apply flux to the component

I thought I just sucked at soldering, but it was the craptastic lead-free solder I was using. Yes, I do care about the environment, but I also care about getting the job done right on the occasion that I need to fix a project around the house. This stuff works very well and doesn't have a bad smell when in

The 0.8mm size is quite thin but useful for the small electronic projects and wire sculptures I do. The soldered joints are strong.
The solder is made of Tin (Sn) and Lead (Pb) with a rosin core flux. It is somewhat amusing that the label on the spool says " LEAD FREE

This is some of the best solder I've ever used, it's identical to kester solder in preformance. I really really love this stuff, personally I think it flows even a little better then Kester solder in to multistrand wire. If you are a R/C hobbiest then you simply can not beat this solder.. I wish they sold 1lb spools of it as I would then

I'm a software engineer, which basically means I don't know how to solder but occasionally try. I picked up my first prototype board for a project and a coworker recommended using flux. This stuff is magic. The solder flowed onto the leads and pads. No more nasty solder balls. The solder is waxy and I applied sparingly using a

UPDATE 2/2021: I reduced this one star. I ended up throwing this away even though I only used maybe 1/8 of it. It just was not as malleable as when I purchased it in 2017. My advice is to put it in a Ziplock bag when not in use otherwise it will dry up and be harder to apply especially on wiring. This is because the lid is just push on

As a new solderer, I figured the reason for my "cold" looking solder joints was the lack of experience. I was extremely frustrated as I used good flux, had a good temperature going, but still getting that cold looking joint. I watched a YouTube on how to fix this and his reasoning was that there's a lot of bad solder out there.

So far, this has worked quite well for what I've needed it for. Having the alligator clamps is nice because it means I no longer need someone else there to help with my soldering projects.

I have had this unit since before Christmas. It is a great unit, solid feeling with a nice handle. Most of the weight comes from a decent transformer, but the PCB board quality could be better. I think the tips it comes with are fine for what they are, but if you want a noticable improvement go get some genuine Hakko T18 tips (900M).

I use this soldering iron daily for work. This is my 3rd purchase as over time the soldering iron breaks down and stops working. When it's brand new I'd give it a 5 star rating, after a couple months of regular use it stops working properly.

I like it, works good the 1 thing I hate is the open port on the tip, which is conveniently meant to apply heat to heat shrink tubing.
You will scald your finger unless you make a conscious effort to point it the other way ... Also, no stand. It has a square part than sometimes can be used haphazardly to balance it when you need to

I did a review of the iron on a forum, so I figured I'd share it:

It's a Weller WE1010 70W Solder Station. It comes with the WEP70 pencil iron and uses the rather common ETA type tips.

Firstly, the unit is designed and engineering Germany. However, it was built in Mexico. I have to give Weller some credit, at least

I've been using a garbage tier 15w soldering iron for the better part of 10 years because I convinced myself it wasn't worth spending the $100+ for a good soldering station. I saw all the good reviews on this kit and the price made my jaw drop, so I tried it out.

No chance in cooling off the tip, and only a couple of plunges into the pad clean
