For bench work, you can't beat the 951-SX, even compared to other Edsyn irons, such as the CL-1080. It heats up quickly; turn it on, and by the time you go wet the sponge, come back and sit down, it is ready to go. Tip changes are quick and easy, and with just a few types you can handle most electronic repairs and projects. I've always liked the feel of the 951 as well. Good ergonomics; light weight, well balanced. As I said above, shop no more. For me, at least, this is the one to have.
The pen is thin, light and comfortable with a small heated zone and short handle-tip distance. The cable is extremely flexible and never gets in the way. Heats in about 3 seconds and stays at temp. Heats huge joints quickly yet handles small ones with ease.
It's an investment, but all the replacement parts are EXTREMELY reasonable. The tips costs pennies and last forever. I have yet to blow a heating element. These things are classy, accurate, and bulletproof. Totally recommended. Not terribly portable but will pack out well into a 7.62mm belt-feed ammo can, which you can find at any surplus shop, with a little foam, and that's what I recommend as a case.
Oh, and consider getting a second pod so you can hold a desoldering attachment, iron with alternate tip, etc.
It heats up fast, seems to maintain the proper temperature and has been a very good tool for me. I would by them them again.

I've purchased many Edsyn "Loner" stations for my company over the years and would not buy or use anything else. You simply cannot do better.Published on November 30, 2011 by Julia Truchsess
I have been using Edsyn equipment for years. If I had a choice I would never use anything else. NASA used these in space once and maybe still does. The tips never wear out. Read morePublished on May 27, 2011 by Terrance Parkhurst
I've had mine for over ten years, used many of the specialty tips (some look very strange, but do the task they were intended for perfectly). Read morePublished on December 22, 2010 by C E Noyes
