Offering a small footprint to free valuable bench space, the Weller WD1002 Digital Soldering Station comes with a powerful 80-watt pencil that allows rapid production when working with lead-free solder, high mass components, and other demanding applications. A special silver heating element for low thermal loss and fast recovery make this unit ideal for continuous production work. The interchangeable barrel gives you the option of working with either a traditional length or shorter tip-to-grip.
The WD1 station features three independent and fully programmable preset buttons that enable you to selectfully programmable preset buttons that allow you to select a preset temperature for each. The operation of the buttons is similar to the station selection buttons on a car radio. Just set the temperature to the desired setting, press and hold and of the buttons for two seconds, and that button is preset to that temperature. You can program anywhere within the station's temperature range of 150 to 850 degrees F.
The matching micro soldering pencil stand offers superior function with a fou-position tilt adjustment that you can set at the angle that feels best to you. It also features an antistatic finish to ensure safety against electrostatic discharge and three tip storage slots.

I was overwhelmed by the number of soldering stations out there, so I finally called the Apex Tool Group, the USA master of the Weller brand. I still don't know if Apex owns Weller, or if they just act as USA manufacturer representatives and distribution. It also seems that Weller is now a German company, or at least has some products coming from a German division. I always thought that Weller was an American brand, but I have not researched to find out the whole Weller story. Anyway, the technical sales department at Apex and I discussed what I already had, what I would be using it for, etc; and their recommendation was the model WD1002, which after some additional research I bought from Amazon. Note that the WD1002 is made in Germany.
The WD1002 is actually a combination of Weller items, including the WD1 control unit, the WP80 soldering iron (soldering pencil) itself, and the so-called 'safety holder' for the iron, model WDH10, and a LTB soldering tip.Read more ›
Tried the Haako 888, the Weller 51, and the RadioShack digital. After "saving" almost $200 three times in a row, I now had over $300 in clutter. Just spend the money once and get the real deal. Works like a dream, even on higher temperature RoHS (aka Lead-Free) solders (there are several).
The tool itself is light-weight and easy to weild. The cable is not stiff and seems to be burn-proof. The control is so easy, I had to read the instructions just to make sure I hadn't missed something. Comes up to temperature quickly and stays there. And then you have to look at the tool-holder. It makes your workbench look like it knows what its doing. Sure beats the ceramic coffee mug I had been using.
I recommend getting a couple different sizes of wider "screw-driver" style tips for it. The pencil-point style tip it comes with did not match my preferences.
And what of my misfortunes? I sold the Haako on eBay and converted the RadioShack digital into a through-hole desoldering station.
My only complaint, and it is a small one, is that the tips are a little bit of a pain to switch quickly when the thing is hot. You have to use pliers to move the hot one that you are taking off, and they are small so I have had them end up in my lap once or twice. Still, on the upside this makes the tips very inexpensive (compared to the super easy to change Metcal ones which are $$$). It's a trade-off, and one of the reasons I went with this over a Metcal station, even if convenience is a little reduced.
If I was going to do it again, I would probably look into one of the Weller units that supports dual pencils. I don't need 2 irons simultaneously all that often, and a cheap 25W pencil iron gets the job done when I do need a second one. Still, I may end up buying a second WD1002 at some point.
