Topic: best soldering iron to buy (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Thank you for all the suggestions. I've decided to go with the hakko fx-888. It has great reviews and temperature dial to adjust the temperature to my exact needs.


That was the reason I bought the Hakko 926 15 years ago and why I bought the 936, fully adjustable temperature... A 120VAC transformer sells for about $25.00 more which was 1/2 the reason for buying the isolation transformer, the other half was to isolate my O'scope from AC Ground. The FX888 is only available AFAIK in that horrid yellow and purple color combo. at least from the 3 or 4 threads I found in searching for the 120VAC transformer for the 936... It is still a great soldering iron regardless of color.
