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.

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 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.

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.

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.

After 8 years of dealing with a cheap $5 walmart soldering iron that burned through tips like woodworkers burn through glue (yeah, I'm a woodworker ;p), I decided it was time to get something more reliable, something I could get more consistent results with. A web search lead me to the Weller WES51 and Hakko FX-888. Both have excellent reviews, and I'm sure I would have been happy regardless of which I chose, but at the time of purchase, the Weller WES51 had a $20 mail in rebate promotion going on, so that's the path I walked.

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.

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.

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.
