My ol' reliable Dick Smith soldering iron has finally given its' last puff of flux fumes.
Time to buy a new iron! And since I'm dealing with more SMD components, I figured that I'd get a combo station for cheap. I can't find a Hakko or Weller for anything near $100 bucks, and I've been told good things about Yihuas, so I thought they'll be first choice in my searches.
…But there's SO MANY different model codes! I can't find a comparison chart anywhere to look at the differences, and they're all fundamentally so similar I have no idea if one model is above the rest or they're simple rebadges with different front panel layouts.
Anyone got some better insight?
