"we managed to design and manufacture these as good as many high quality stations out there but with more features and with excellent Quality Control, only you will not pay the high end brand price!!!"

I wonder if these are made in the USA or ?
It doesn't say.. Anyway a great price.

I have what is probably the previous version of that model (I bought it maybe 5 years ago). It looks almost exactly the same except the yellow protector is smooth.
It works very well for the money. You need to clean the tips often since the residues from rosin stick to them. Also the screw nut that locks the tip holder needs to be tightened from time to time (at least on mine it does).
But today for the same money you can get a 2 in one that also has a hot air rework station. That's what I would get.

Here :

It's actually a bit more expensive since it comes from China.

If you get it, please let me know how it works, maybe I'll get one too.

I prefer two separate units. if one breaks down, you don't have to replace the whole thing.
