Ok so I have a broad knowledge of systems and software, from pongs to mainframes, but what I know nothing about is soldering :unsure:

I am sure I will get the hang of it after "some" practice but as I think a good tool is halve the job I was wondering what would be a good soldering station ?

Weller seems to be the market standard and I have read that high wattage is good for maintaining temperature but also weller isnt the cheapest around. You also see a lot cheaper ones but are they any good ?

Will use it for IC's mainly and perhaps some heavier stuff like power sockets too every now and then.

Any feedback appreciated!

Thanks!

Stefan.
