This analog soldering station from Weller is an innovative heater and sensor combination that gives you a quick heat-up and rapid temperature recovery. It has a wireless temperature lockout to prevent operators from raising the temperature levels higher than specified for the board or component so if gives you control over the process. The station automatically powers down after 90 minutes of inactivity to prolong tip like and save power.
The Weller WES51 Analog Soldering Station, with included soldering pencil, stand, and sponge, is the perfect choice for a variety of soldering applications, including industrial manufacturing, rework, repairs, and more. The comfortable foam-grip pencil and variable temperature controls give you complete command of your work for precise results. Plus, with a non-burnable silicone rubber cord, ESD safety, and automatic shut-off technology, the WES51 is safe enough to use in a continuous production environment.
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.

I've used it four or five times in the last two years, two or three hours of use in total. Today I pulled it out to fix a wiring problem on a circuit board. The soldering station wouldn't turn on; the LED just blipped green for an instant and shut off, but the pencil didn't heat up. I walked through all of the diagnostics for the pencil and discovered that the circuit board is bad. Replacing it costs half of the price of a new unit, and that's taking a leap of faith that it won't fail again if some other component is involved. The limited warranty lasts only one year; after that, Apex / Weller will gladly repair it for $60 plus two way shipping, i.e. about the price of a brand new unit from Amazon Prime.
That's disappointing. I expected this to last for decades, but I got about 3 hours of use. Ironically, my cheap $5 Radio Shack soldering pencil still works after 30 years.
After some research, I would suggest looking at the Hakko FX-888D, digital soldering station, available on Amazon. I recently reviewed it here:[...]
The temperature response is fast and accurate, You can go from a cold iron to being ready to solder within 30 seconds.
The pencil is comfortable to hold, lightweight, and has a pretty short heating element so you have a lot of control. The cable for the pencil is heat resistant and hasn't even been marked by the few times I've glanced it with the heating element.
The holder is durable and heavy. Doesn't move if you don't want it to. The sponge is a sponge, I prefer waterless tip cleaners.
By far though, the part that blew me away was that the included manual has full diagrams of the functionality of the station. Along with this, it has guides on how to repair the station if parts become damaged or wear out, and troubleshooting guides on how to identify which parts are causing problems. This is a company that thinks about the end user of their products, there's no planned obsolescence bullshit or intentionally using shitty non-replaceable parts to try to sell more units. I bought this a few months ago and am probably never going to need to buy another one ever.
We have a Weller at work with occasional use. The guys leave the iron on so the tips turn black yet clean up. So I thought I would try this unit. So far so good. If you don't have a brass (water-less) tip cleaner get one -- with rosin in the bottom. These tips clean off great with it.
