The Weller WES51 Analog Soldering Station features:
  • An included power unit, soldering pencil, stand, and sponge
  • A durable design ideal for industrial manufacturing applications
  • Temperature lock-out that prevents excessive temperatures
  • An automatic sleep-mode that turns off soldering station after 99 minutes of inactivity
  • Adjustable temperature controls; quick heat-up and recovery times

Electronic Temperature Control for Precise Performance
No matter what your soldering job is, the WES51's electronic control system lets you set the temperature you need to get the job done right. The soldering temperature is adjustable from 350 to 850 degrees Fahrenheit and is accurately measured to within nine degrees. And the WES51's innovative built-in heater and sensor combination offers quick heat-up times and temperature recovery for better heat control over the course of your job.

The WES51's wireless temperature lockout prevents you from raising the temperature beyond what is recommended for a specific workpiece, board, or component. This eliminates the possibility of damaging components by accidentally setting the temperature too high for the job.

Comfortable, Easy-to-Use Soldering Pencil
The kit's included PES51 Soldering Pencil features a durable Nichrome-wound stainless steel heating element for long life and quick response time. Stainless steel will not corrode at high temperatures, meaning you can use this durable pencil for a long time to come. An added bonus, the PES51 Soldering Pencil is compatible with Weller ET series tips.

The PES51 also features a non-burning silicone rubber cord, a lightweight handle made from high-impact ESD (electro-static discharge) plastic, and a foam sleeve that allows for continuous use without fatigue or heat discomfort.

Wireless temperature lockout enhances your work's precision.
Innovative Features for Long-Term, Safe Use
The WES51 Soldering Station meets Weller's high standards for quality and safety. The station will automatically shut off power to the PES51 Soldering Pencil after 99 minutes of inactivity, which helps to conserve electricity and extends the tip life. Additionally, the easy-to-understand LED (light-emitting diode) lets you know what mode the WES51 is in, so you can easily see if the temperature is locked or unlocked and whether or not the unit is turned on.

The Weller WES51 Soldering station is UL/CUL listed, which means that it meets or exceeds independent safety standards. Furthermore, the PES51 Soldering Pencil is designed to be used in electrostatic-free workstations, and, for added safety, it is completely free of stored static charges. The WES51 Soldering Station is backed by a one-year warranty.

What's in the Box
WES51PU Power Unit, PES51 Soldering Pencil, PH50 Stand, and sponge.

The sponge makes it easy to always keep your tip clean.

I have used this way more times than my previous soldering iron, and much longer periods of time.
This iron heats up very quickly, and it stays at the same temperature.

A few years back I bought a digital soldering station from Rat Shack. It said it had replacable tips. You can replace them with as many tips as you want so long as you replace it with the only tip that fits that soldering iron which is huge. So I was working on a little tedious project and decided it was time to buy a new soldering iron that actually had a large selection of tips. After much deliberation I bought this one.

The soldering wand is very ergonomic, light and easy to use. It has a soft narrow grip and a short tip making it easy to control when you are in tight spaces. It heats up in under a minute. The dial goes in 10 degree increments from 350 to 850 degrees Fahrenheit. The unit is very well built and has a sturdy stand with a funnel on the end to help guide the tip in so you aren't banging it against the coil when putting it in the stand.

All in all I think it is a great soldering iron. I don't know what the reviewer who gave it one star was talking about because this one definitely doesn't have an LCD. Perhaps they actually have the WESD51. As far as the lateral pressure goes, I can't think of any soldering project that requires pressure. It's about heat transfer not about forcing the object off the board.

I don't know what WES51 the other reviewer used, but the current WES51 does not have a digital readout. It's an analog unit with rheostat. If you don't need bells and whistles this is the iron for you. Readily available tips and so forth and rugged design. We use dozens of these with no problems.

I got the WES51 station for my first soldering experience, replacing bad/blown capacitors in my older G5 Imac, and it worked great. (25 capacitors replaced successfully!)

I purchased based on positive reviews and the price seemed good. Never having soldered before- and frankly never having worked on the guts of my computer before- the project was daunting; I didn't want to spend a lot of dough on a tool that I may never use again and for a project that I perceived had dim prospects for success. Having used it successfully, I now consider this to be an excellent tool and a tremendous value for the price.

When I first opened the box, I thought the unit looked antiquated- something you might unearth from underneath your grandfather's workbench. It has one LED to let you know the unit is on and heating, and a dial. The machine is solid, though, and has the look and feel of quality.

The iron itself is light and the soft foam rubber makes it very comfortable to hold over time. Also, the coating on the handle keeps your fingers cool- I used it comfortably for hours. The cable from the iron to the station is thoughtfully long and made of high quality silicone that is very flexible- these features made the iron very easy to use. I spent hours on my project, holding the iron constantly, and never felt I had to put it down due to fatigue or because it became too hot to hold.

The iron heated to its designated temperature very quickly- seemed to me a matter of seconds from a cold start. The stand that comes with it is durable and the coiled receiver protects the iron well (and me from the hot tip!) and is a good angle for constant use. All in all, I am impressed with the quality and ergonomics of this kit.

We use this model soldering station at our business. We first purchased the previous version of this model and still have it. This version works basically the same way with the only difference being the way that the LED light on the front works. On the older version the LED was just an On or Off indicator, but on the newer version, it also indicates what heating state the iron is in (I.e. heating, or at temperature). We now have 3 of these units. Our company is in the Analog and digital panel meter business, and we are also a modification/repair center, so these units see daily use and sometimes use all day. These units have a great advantage over traditional soldering irons due to the added temperature sensor in the tip. This helps to avoid any overheating that may occur in a standard soldering iron. The price on these units as well as the nice tips they come with makes the choice between a cheap soldering iron and this unit simple. I would reccommend this to anyone who uses a soldering iron on a regular basis.

I have owned Weller products since the 60's w/am old handheld I purchased at Lafayette Electronics in Baton Rouge, LA. This is an upgrade from the orange station Weller makes, I got at Sears, that eventually died. This particular station really does a quick job of heating and the variable switch make it easy to change when different levels of heat are required. I am really pleased with it. My only complaint is that the cord on the wand could be about a foot longer, but that's OK. I just move it closer to my work.

I've been using this solder station for a few hours a week for the last year. The durability seems fine, the temperature dial and on/off switch still feel crisp without slop. The iron stand has a ceramic holder ring mounted in the typical spring which keeps from banging soft tips on the steel. The stand base also has holes to store extra tips so they're on hand instead of missing in a drawer somewhere.

The ET tips that work with the included soldering pencil are great, from a 1/64" conical tip for SMD to a 3/16" screwdriver tip for chassis work, it does many jobs well. The soldering pencil is light and nimble so I don't get hand cramps with extended use.

This has been a great tool that's gone through 5 lbs of solder without a hitch. It's no frills and all business but a huge step-up in quality from the $15 irons I used until I purchased this. The end justifies the means.
