Sorry, I'd love to stay and chat but I have to go now... it's going to take a long time to remove these capacitors at 77 degrees.
+ Good for DIY, hobby, and occasional use
+ Good quality for the price
+ Weller is well-reputed and major brand, so a large variety of tips are available to suit almost any project
- only 40 watts so it takes a while for the tip to re/heat than a higher wattage
- no temperature display, so you have to experiment to find the right dial setting for each soldering job
- not grounded
Weighing how often I use this (occasional) against the cost increase to get the missing features (higher wattage, more precise temperature control, ESD safe), it's not worth it to upgrade to the WES-51 (about $100, which is more than double the price).
I first encountered a Weller Soldering Station when employed at a Naval Weapons Facility in the 1970's, and again at a Nuclear X--Ray Assembly Facility shortly afterwards.
I first learned to solder using my dad's huge soldering iron that dated from the 1940's, and then as I did more delicate work with electronics (and my model railroad and slot car models), I used an Ungar 40 Watt iron for years.
But it wasn't until I obtained a well used Weller Soldering Station at a Model Train Show a while back, that I truly began to appreciate it's versatility and reliability.
With full temperature control, an assortment of various soldering tips, and a variety of solders, I found that I had much more control and higher quality solder joints for both electrical circuit work and brass joinery for building model railroad locomotives in 1/4" scale!
While I prefer a precision torch for silver soldering and most mechanical work, the Weller Station with an appropriate tip also worked well with high temperature silver bearing and solid silver solders on the tiny assemblies of brass that would have melted under the heat of my torch.
Sadly, I had some changes in my life recently, and no longer have my machine tools, model tools, and work benches.
So to start again on a smaller scale to keep my mind and fingers nimble, I purchased another Weller Soldering Station, and use it for all but heavy silver soldering.
I am well pleased with it, and can recommend it very highly.
This is a smaller version, but just as well built as the larger units with more features, and is rated up to 300Watts.
But for basic electronic work on circuit boards, jewelry making and repair, as well as most model work, this unit will do it all.
Weller has a fine warranty and reputation, and you know that you will always be able to find spare parts and factory servicing. Something that is lacking in the cheap Chinese imports sold online and at retail outlets.
And, the real plus is that you will be dealing with a US Company based in North Carolina!
anyway as stated, excellent iron for a hobbyist. could be used for (and frequently has been over the years) professional work, compatible with a large variety of excellent solder tips. i prefer not to include this in my reviews, but it is backed with the industry standard name in electronics and hobbyist standard soldering equipment (weller is extremely old and well respected concerning soldering irons, there are tons of professionals who won't even consider using another brand for small scale electronics, although lots of others are just fine). in general i would have a hard time not recommending this to someone who is either serious about learning soldering or just needs a new kit on the cheap to get some stuff done.
the example i received was exactly as expected and functioned great. i received it on the earliest expected day. it has worked excellent for doing some really simple and basic wire to wire and wire to contact solder joints. currently my usage is no more than hobbyist, but my experience is semi-professional (i'm a pc repair technician by trade, a soldering iron isn't that big a part of it, but it is an important thing to know and do well), i state that to say that based on my experience with the iron i wouldn't be afraid to use it every day for hours on end, might need a hair of maintenence but i think it would survive that task for 6 months without much issue other than a tip replacement or three, and likely the handle pad would need replacement. good investment for a pro in a bind, excellent investment for a hobbyist.

PROS: Es de buena calidad hablando de sus componentes, la punta, el calefactor, el lápiz de sostenimiento acojinado, la base se ve bien en la mesa de trabajo, el interruptor es de bordes suaves, iluminado, el control de potencia funciona y se ve bien, la esponja incluida es grande, el soporte es robusto.
CONTRAS: No es para uso profesional, con uso profesional me refiero a que la temperatura no es regulada sino que el usuario necesita subir o bajar la potencia al tanteo según el uso que le vaya a dar. La punta incluida es la ST3 que es plana y para poder soldar o remover componentes electrónicos pequeños o SMD, es necesario adquirir la ST5 o la ST7. Aunque el cordón de la base está aterrizado, el cautín no lo está y no tiene protección antiestática.
En resumen si necesitan temperatura REGULADA, no CONTROLADA, necesitan adquirir otro cautín. Si necesitan un buen cautín de marca, con base y control de potencia, este es el adecuado.
Este cautin digamos que es semiprofecional pero es muy bueno y ademas el cautin lo puedes usar de forma autónoma sin la estación, de igual forma a la estación le puedes conectar cualquier otro cautin que desees en caso de que este se descomponga, pero paro la calidad del cautin durara mucho tiempo. La estación es regulable lo por lo que esta estación esta genial, y es de buena marca ademas esta a un super precio mejor que en otras tiendas de internet.
Si vas a comprar esta estación asegúrate también de comprar una punta Weller ST7MX ya que la punta que trae de fabrica es plana y se gasta muy rápido.
Lo compre por Amazon EE.UU y con envió gratis se tardo semana y media en llegar, al principio pensé que no llegaría porque la linea de tiempo no avanzaba, pero después todo fue muy rápido.
