We think the Hakko 936-12 is the best under $100 soldering station you can buy. So much so we worked very hard to get them in our store and at a great price ($95.00). the Hakko, known by engineers for making excellent quality tools & soldering irons – These are not Chinese/Taiwanese knock-offs, this is the real thing – made in Japan. The Hakkos have quality construction, this iron is the last one you’ll need for decades. Calibrated temperature control knob gives precision heat to minimize cold solder joints. Once you know you’re on the path of electronics, this is the iron you’ll want beside you on your desk. We got the medium tip on this iron, the most popular size, great for through-hole and some SMT.
One of the other reasons we love the Hakkos is the warranty, above – a scan of the included warranty card.
