Micro Electronics Soldering Station

Post by ultron » Mon Sep 11, 2017 3:07 pm

Hey Gang!
I'm getting to the point where I'm going to soon need a decent soldering station for wiring up micro components like 0402 SMDs & the like. I'm looking to get a station that has a smaller soldering iron with interchangeable tips & good temp controls. Perhaps something that wont break the bank would be nice too! I'm looking to spend about a $100 max.

Does anyone have any good ideas/experience with stations they could recommend?

Thanks in advance for any help! :D

Check out reviews on amazon. Do you just need a station or the iron as well. A 20 watt iron was not hot enough for me. I'm also using non leaded solder as well so a hotter, variable temp iron has worked out better.
