Electronic Temperature Control for Precise Performance
No matter what your soldering job is, the WESD51'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 WESD51'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 WESD51'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.

More About Weller
Weller Manufacturing Company was founded in 1945 as a family partnership near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Over the years, manufacturers of many types of products – from televisions to washing machines – came to rely on Weller for its quality and reliability. The Weller brand has a long history of innovation. In the 1950's new technology from Weller maintained heat better while lowering energy consumption. Weller continued its innovation for years to come. Legend has it that Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak hand-soldered the circuit boards of the very first Apple computers with Weller tools.
Today, most of the manufacturing for Weller happens at one of two locations. Besigheim, Germany and Queretaro, Mexico. Virtually every major manufacturer of consumer electronics equipment uses Weller tools. Go with the brand that has stood the test of time. Happy soldering!

The pencil itself is small and lightweight and very easy to manuever. The cord also wont melt with intermittent contact with the tip. Comes up to temperature very quickly and reponds quickly when you adjust the temp with the control unit.
I have found a temperature around 550 works good for typical 60/40 solder on average jobs as i typically like a hotter iron. I cant imagine what I would need to solder up in the 7-800 degree range. This setup has an adjustable temp from 350-850 degrees F. This iron wont replace a 130 watt gun for the large jobs but overall definetly 5 stars. A pleasure to work with and seems to be made well with a quality feel. I'm glad I invested in getting this vs another standard pencil iron.
If your spending this much on a solderin iron you probably know how to take care of the tip but its very important otherwise it will oxidize and you wont be able to solder anything no matter how high the temperature is set. The manual doesnt go into too much detail about this but basically you want to keep the tip cleaned and tinned before and after each joint.
It can handle a wide range of tasks from very small SMD components to large ground connections. The silicone rubber cord resists high temperatures should the tip accidentally come in contact. I have one on my lab bench at work and liked it so much I bought one for my home workbench.
I knew Weller had a great reputation, but I was very concerned that the quality of the cheaper products like the WESD51 might not live up to that reputation. I read a few positive reviews and decided to make the purchase.
It's been almost a year and I have used this iron several times for various jobs. I am very pleased with the purchase and would recommend this product to everyone. If you have a plain old iron, it is worth the upgrade to the WESD51. Good temperature control, heats up quickly, reliable, maintains heat when working with large parts/heat sinks/copper pours, and the tips are cheap and plentiful. I love this station and you will too.
If you can't afford this one I would recommend the Weller Analog version, which I used while going to school, and loved as well.
Provided you follow appropriate safety procedures, this tool is super to use! All I had to do was dial up the appropriate temperature and the tip heated up in far less time than I expected. It looks very well-made and rugged. The stand is very stout as well.
I dabble in electronics and robotics and I have reason to believe that this is probably the only iron I'll ever need; Weller's good reputation is well-deserved.
