    I've been using a Hakko 701 soldering station for well over 15 years now. They make good Irons even if a bit $$$.
    my workshop probably has a dozen of them, never give any problems. My biggest issue is the parts are getting smaller and my eyes are getting older…. lol

    So, which Station type is the best for the hobbyist, soldering controllers and other boards?

    I really like this one I got last year from alliexpress. Like the fact that it extracts the solder fumes away.

    I used to be a devote Weller user but I "won" a Hakko 888 from a forum a few years back and have been converted ever since!
