  1. Highly recommend the Hakko 936, it’s got to be the best deal in terms of performance and price for hobbyists. The tips are widely available and take a lot of punishment before having to be replaced…actually, I can’t remember having to replace one yet. Must have good plating.

  2. I don’t really see what this iron has over the Weller WESD51 but see some features that the WESD51 seemingly has over this, like digital readout in both C and F, and temperature locking.

    What makes this the “best iron in the world”? 🙂

  3. I must also recommend the Hakko 936. Mine was a gift as payment for solving a problem for a friend. Hands down, it is single best gift a friend has ever given me. So buy one for yourself and give one to someone too.

  4. Thank you … i have been looking for a soldering iron for some time… this might be it…

  5. @HappyHax0r we don’t find digital control to be worth the extra $, the hakko has excellent temperature control and is pre-calibrated. the hakko also has temperature locking, check out the manual. they are extremely well made, in the <$100 market these are the best you can get and people have been asking us for years to carry them. and lastly, you should refresh the page before you claim a comment is deleted on twitter, thanks.

  6. Looking into it further at HakkoUSA I see that pretty much one has a digital display and the other doesn’t… HMMMM… I might pick one of these up for my friend :).

    Is there a place in Canada that he can get service if it breaks? I know he can buy the parts through HakkoUSA, but
    if it’s under warranty will it have to go back to the USA for repair?

  8. @HappyHax0r – the repair location is in california. UPS ground shipping is about the same from canada or domestic. that said, these are high quality irons, we have never heard of a hakko product needing warranty repair – if there are any problems we’ll also help our customers, so it’s twice as good 🙂

  9. had a hakko for years now. maybe not this model. highly recommended. great workhorse soldering iron. from my experience, repair will not be an issue.

  10. Are you planning on carrying replacement tips for this? I have a xytronic 379, and I could use a good source of high quality tips. When I realized that most of the ones out there were knock-offs, I got scared and never bought the variety of tips I want (something small enough to work with 402s more comfortably, and a larger chisel at the very least).

  11. hi hal – we plan on getting in tips later.

  12. I have a friend who has a Hakko 936 clone. It’s *OK*. By OK, I mean, better than a $10 firestarter. However it’s definitely NOT a 936, and there are a few things about it that should put off even the modest hobybist: The handle seems much weaker than a real 936. The circuitry seems flaky and often doesn’t hold temperature very well, and most annoying, the recovery and output are FAR below the real 936. I’ve soldered large brass gears, motor shafts, and lead battery terminals with my 936 and it’s highly impressive. I think the heating element in this may not be nearly the same quality. I feel like it’s worth the extra for the original 936 from Hakko.
