4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Iron for the Money, February 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Aoyue 937+ Digital Soldering Station - ESD Safe includes Spare Element UPDATED VERSION!! (Tools & Hardware)
I have a slightly older model at work - same part# but the newer one has venting holes in the shaft of the iron. The unit heats up very quickly and is fairly cool to handle.

The included replacement heating element is a nice touch. I am still on the original one at work. The sponge included is very thin but I don't recommend using them anyway due to thermal shock stresses on the tip. get yourself a nice brass wire tip cleaner. Hakko makes a good one.

When done using the unit, lower the temp to the lowest setting (200) and wait for it to reach that temperature before turning off. This will prolong the tip life. Also, before it cools off, apply some solder to the tip and let it harden on there to prevent oxidation.

The only real grip is the iron holder - I would have liked to see that designed a little better. Something with a smoother entry to avoid tip damage.
