Can anyone recommend a good soldering station?
I have a 6040/878 from China, and the handle literally melts. I've replaced the handle *twice* now, and it seems the melting is a design flaw without resolution.
I have a Weller WTCPT station that's temperature controlled... a fine system, but doesn't get hot enough to melt the new non-leaded solders.
I don't want to spend the time and energy getting something online just to find out it's another piece of Chinese crap.
So... what's a good hobbyist soldering station to buy? Something that will last a few years, isn't electrically dangerous to use, and gets hot enough to melt the modern solders?
