I was able to use this iron at my workplace before deciding to purchase one for myself. I am an electronics technician by trade and also do repairs and fabrication stuff in my spare time at home. For years I used a weller 25 watt pencil iron that was probably 20 years old and I was quite happy with it however I felt I was ready for something a little better. I really wasnt sure if this iron would be able to do some of my larger tasks like splicing 12-14 gauge wires due to the amount of heat required but once you set the iron to the desired temperature it will remain there no matter what you are soldering. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of heat transfer I could get with the small tips.

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.

The Weller WESD51 is an excellent low cost soldering iron for the lab technician or hobbyist. The key benefit is the ability to accurately control and monitor the tip temperature. This allows using the lowest possible temperature setting (675° - 725°) which prolongs tip life and prevents component damage. The tips are readily available and cheap.

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've used the same couple of cheap but dependable Radio Shack irons since I was about 12. Now 17 years later, I needed something smaller and more temperature controllable for working with lead-free solder and smaller parts.

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.

Love Weller, but... Have soldered for years with cheap irons to good bench Weller analog irons and never had a problem like this. Bought this digital one as a gift at Christmas time for my son to work on his projects. Less than a months infrequent use and the soldering pencil cooked itself.

While under normal operation the foam handle of the soldering iron became unusually warm. The temperature also fluctuated to 540°F while it was set to 520°F. When I tinned and cleaned, I noticed that the solder boiled in a way that occurs when the tip is about 600°F doing small solder removal from boards. I placed the tool back into its holder and turned the unit off. After a few minutes I looked at it and, to my surprise, realized the grip had burned away and the handle connecting the sleeve had not only melted but bent.

Tested the soldering pencil, appears to have proper resistance per manual. Weller hasn't responded to a few messages sent via their feedback form. Looks like I'll be stuck shelling out more money to replace the pencil, and testing the base if no resolve.

-- Update. Worked with Amazon to resolve the issue and received a replacement / exchange. Weller typically makes really good product. (Updated from 2 to 3 stars.) Thus far, the new one is working as expected. Many thanks to Amazon for listening and taking care of its customers. Most likely the issue was in the temperature sensor or logic board in the base, but didn't dig in to check.

I am currently working for a company where I need to do some serious soldering on both through hole and surface mount circuits. We have two soldering stations; both have temperature control and are rated for about the same temperature. Of the two the Weller Digital is the only one I use anymore. It heats up quickly and can handle continuous soldering for over an hour of work. I like the digital display because in my case I work with some sensitive components that can't take much more than 250 degC (480 degF) and others that I need to use high temperature solder that doesn't flow until it hits about 350 degC (660 degF). The tip on it has lasted for a very long time, and comes nice and clean every time tin it. It can be set up to have the stand attached to the base on either side, or to be freestanding. The fact that it iron itself is grounded is nice for any static sensitive applications. It is easy to hold onto, and doesn't burn my hands like my iron at home. I plan on getting one of these soldering stations for myself to use at home ASAP.

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.
