Yay logan, I just recently got new tips as well, It was only about $15 for new iron & tips for the station :)
Did you get those from the same reseller on Alliexpress or somewhere else?

My opinion is that combination tools are much less than the sum of their parts. :(

If you need a hot air tool (for heatshrink), buy a paint stripper gun for $25.

If you need a simple power supply, buy a 30V 3A unit for $95.

If you need a soldering iron, there's many in the $50 - $150 range that are reasonable for hobby use.
