The Weller WLC100 40-Watt Soldering Station
I have had the Weller WLC100 40-Watt Soldering Station for 5 years now. The level of use it’s seen has varied up and down, depending on how much time I had available to spend on my electronics hobby. The iron itself is absolutely fine for, you guessed it, hobby and DIY use. An personally I think its one of the best soldering stations on the market.
The standard tip is too big for electronics use and must be replaced with something smaller. With this station you need to pay quite careful attention to the way the solder flows when you heat the joint, if you want to produce high quality solder joints.
