I understand money being tight, lord knows I've been there. However I have learned the hard way that cheaping out on tools is just a bad idea, as you really do get what you pay for. Looking at eBay you can pick up a Hakko 808 for under $200.


If you itemize on your taxes you can write it off on your taxes as a business expense, then do a couple of recap jobs and you have it paid for.

I got the white GaoJie pictured above for christmas. The stand is pretty nice and I see no problems other than my tip at least was not tinned at the very tip and thus it can't melt the solder. Still gets hot enough on the sides to melt fairly large joints though. Just can't suck the solder up for obvious reasons. :b&w:
