Default Good setup, what do I need?

I was going to get a csi station1a. They wanted 20+ for shipping. So if its going to be fifty total anyways. Are there any good kits that would have all I need and a decent non cheapo soldering iron.

If not what would I need to get? I live in a small town so I basically have to shop online for everything.

Looks like a great product & priced very well........it should serve you well for many years to come...........just have an ol' cheapie on standby so you can fix the "good one" when/if it ever goes down. Learn how to use it properly for any one particular project, maintain it well & keep it clean.

So that would be a good one to get even though the shipping is a bit much?

Would this be a bad idea?

Amazon.com: Elenco SL-5K-40 Solder Station Kit with 40W Iron: Home Improvement

Has a soldering iron that you use to make a soldering station. Might be a good practice project but I dont know if it is a quality setup.

What I am trying to find is something like this but with a better solderimg iron.

Since I read the csi is made by aoyue I assume the csi one is just a rebranded.

Amazon.com: AOYUE 936 Soldering Station: Electronics

Is this on any better with a digital termostat?
