Default WTB soldering station

I'm looking for a soldering station in good working condition. I've just ordered an Amp6 Basic but don't have a decent soldering iron. Shipping would be to the west coast of Canada.

Cheers- Preston

You don't need a soldering station, the AMP6 is very doable with any cheap 25w iron. What you do need however is a tip in good condition. If the tip is worn it makes it much harder. Decent solder makes a world of difference as well.

I just built up this DAC yesterday using only a cheap 25w iron, it has SSOP28 and TSSOP28 IC's.

Hi Preston,

I have an extra soldering station that I could sell. I bought it brand new last year when I thought mine was flaking out---turns out is was OK and so I have never used the new one. I believe it's a Hakko 939, but I would have to dig it out of storage tomorrow to verify. It was $99 on sale when I got it, but I'd sell it for $50. Shipping should be $10 or so.

Email me if you can (your email isn't turned on) or post your email (in words so it can't be spammed) if you are interested.

I'm interested in the Hakko 939 iron if Preston isn't.
