The WES51's heater and sensor combination offers quick heat-up times and temperature recovery for highly efficient soldering.View larger.
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.
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.

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 placed my order and grabbed a few extra tips as well, since I was used to burning through them so fast with my cheap iron. That was an unnecessary precaution, as it turns out. I've been using the WES51 for several months now and I'm still on the original tip, and it is showing no signs of burning out or otherwise needing to be replaced. More on performance in a bit though; I want to first go through my initial impressions from receiving the WES51.
So once it showed up two days after ordering (I <3 amazon prime), it was time to open up daddy's new toy. ;p
It comes packaged in a thick cardboard box with all the necessary info on it, and inside that box is another thick cardboard box with the station, soldering iron, stand, and tip attached to the iron. The packaging is excellent. It's very ship friendly.
IN appearance it's a very simple, no frills soldering station. Everything about it is very basic and simple. The color of the base may turn off some buyers, but I like the color blue, even if the particular shade used isn't my favorite. The power unit is pretty heavy, and has rubber feet so it doesn't dance around your work area.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Great soldering unit. Tried the cheaper sets ups and it was a waste of time. This is the route to go!Published 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
Seems to works only intermittently. It worked long enough for me to get what I needed done finished. Any future work, I'll have to buy a better unit. Read morePublished 2 days ago by harrisek
This is the best soldering iron I have ever owned. Heats up rapidly and is very well-controlled. I turn it off in between solder joints because it heats up within about 20 seconds. Read morePublished 6 days ago by marko
