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!
Digital Soldering Station
From the Manufacturer
This digital 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 temperature never seems to vary when you are not touching a cold workpiece, and it comes back to temperature very quickly when heating your workpiece. The digital display allows you to precisely set your temperature for the proper melt point of your solder, so you don't overheat or smoke.
The pen is very comfortable and I have had no fatigue when working long hours on a project (building a guitar amplifier head) that I am finishing now.
I would highly recommend getting a good tip cleaner though. I greatly prefer something like the Hakko 599B-02 Solder Tip Cleaning Wire and Holder for keeping my tips clean. It doesn't really matter which cleaning wire you buy, but the one I listed is what I use and it works great.
I attached a picture of the project I am working on. All the work was done with this station and I couldn't be happier with it.
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.
In a word -- wow. Is it worth the extra $30 or so to have this over the other lesser offerings? Yes, very much so. It heats up VERY fast and is very stable once you have it up to temperature. It's a joy, and while the differences aren't large compared to other digitally controlled stations on the market the knob .vs. buttons is a pretty significant convenience difference (just dial it to the desired temperature instead of holding "up" or "down") -- oh and did I mention that it comes up to temp from off amazingly quickly?
I'd have liked it if Weller included a few additional tips in the package, but the cost of buying a few tips for various purposes isn't much of an additional "ask." The tip is grounded (thus ESD safe) and the provided tip fine enough for most electronic work. Get a larger tip or two if you intend to solder larger-gauge wires; it will make the job more-pleasant.
