Soldering Station recommendation

k6sdw
Greetings Elecraft afficiados, I'm looking for a recommendation for a soldering station, my Weller temperature-controled station of 20 years is dying an agonizing death and its time to upgrade!


I don't use my soldering station a lot, maybe once a month and once in a while put a kit together, so I don't need a really expensive unit, but probably one under $100 for my needs with temperature control.


Any suggestions? Thanks much

I like my Aoyue 937. Amazon has 'em for $59.95.

Pace ST-50 - we use them at work - can't beat 'em if you can't afford a Metcal.
The tips are integrated into the heating element and they are a breeze to change.
They also regulate FAST.
Here's one on e-Bay for $150 (I got the same one for $100)
