I've been using one of these for a few years:
It's been OK for soldering wires together and light repair work but it's frustrating working on the smaller stuff I'm into now. Plus RS doesn't stock replacement tips.
I'm on a budget so I'd like to come in under $100. Anything would be an upgrade...
Any advise? I've looked at the combo iron/hot air deals on ebay but I'm not sure if I'd use the hot air part and it would just be taking up space on an already cluttered bench.
If my current project works out I may celebrate with a new iron :)
