...And when it comes to clean the board after, do you recommend anything?...
It wasn't mentioned that these cheap iron usuallydon't have temperature control.This causes problems.
Take a look at the PanaVise. Use google to find it. Yes, it is expensive. Look at it carefully. Notice the several axes of motion. Now look for cheap clones. You may find one. But anything less than a PanaVise functionality is just a waste of money, because you will want to (or have to) throw it out in less than a year. Even a simple bench vise would be a better investment.
I dip a soft bristled toothbrush in 70% isopropyl alcohol
Based on suggestions for Hakko and Weller, I was thinking of getting a Yihua 936 (Clone of the Hakko 936) as a real Hakko or Weller is a bit out of my budget. It's sold on amazon.com here and I've seen it recommended on other sites as it's only $25-30. If I buy this in combination with this solder , would it work well and would the iron last me a while?
Anyone has experience with AOYUE soldering equipment ?For example this station.
This is the best iron out there but beyond both my budgetand I'm sure the OP's.
