I know its not quite a trex topic, but it will be used on trex builds and upgrades. Anyway, I need to decide on one and am leaning toward the Hakko 936. I seen a pretty sweet one with a flame wrap on the power supply, soldering station and on the handle of the iron. A bit pricy at about $120. Just would like some feedback on the 936 before I splurge. Thanks, -Karl

Wow if i can get this for $80 that means the Flame rap is $45 bucks. I would rather buy more tips.

Ok, did a little footwork and found the Flame wrap Hakko 936 for 89.00. Now, what kind of tip(s) are you guys using. I have to purchase one seperately so suggestions would help. -Karl

I will never understand why anyone would spend so much on a soldering iron when you can buy this for next to nothing

heats up in nothing flat and works better than any electric iron I have ever owned and when it goes bad you throw it away and buy another for next to nothing,I carry these with me to the field.

OK, just purchased it. It was about 100bucks including shipping and comes with a flat tip. I know I could go a little cheaper, but the flame wrap is just sweet. Its like buying a car, and skipping the power window upgrade only to kick yourself later! -Karl

That is a cheap solution!
Im a Chicago L.U.130 Journeyman Plumber by trade and use a torch ALL the time. I would still be more comfortable using laten heat to solder electronics instead of a direct flame. Besides, who doesnt like a good excuse to buy cool tools! -Karl

I have had my 936 station for almost 2 years now. These are a little expensive but nothing but top quality from Hakko. Those skins look pretty awesome.

I use a Weller 100/140 Watt Soldering Gun for everything. It Heats in seconds, and transfers Heat quickly. This is Especially handy for Deans ends, where I can heat up the metal before the plastic melts. Everytime I try a lower wattage soldering iron, by the time the connector is hot enough for solder to melts on it, the metal connector is getting loose in the plastic. Not trying to be negative, I'm just curious what the beneft of a soldering station is.

The weller is nice, but once you use a good iron or station and learn how to solder proporly it makes the job a lot easier and faster. My dad was a profesional instument tech and he show me the way to do it right. You have better solder joints and you wont melt circuit boards or connectors. The Solder station lets you dial in the right amount of heat to make good joints and not spend time heating up parts or damaging them.

The iron i have now is a Unger and it works great. even for RC car batteries. But i am starting to do more ciruct board repairs and the solder staion is the way to go. So i figured it is time to get one. The repairs like new antenna wire to receivers, switches on my radio, and smaller wire repairs that do not need the heat that my unger puts out. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link. I love my 936 and might just get a set of flame stickers for it if they sell just the stickers.

For just graphics, I seen this:

http://shop.tnt-fx.com/index.php?ma...f21be8040cc9da4

I dont know if it is just for the power supply, or if it comes with a wrap for the iron station and the iron handle. For thirty bucks, I would hope it comes with a wrap for all of it? -Karl
