Today I received a nice little soldering station. Looks well made, seems to work fine (at least for my needs) and, finally, I have soft cables! My Antex iron has a really hard PVC cable which makes it impossible to manipulate as it fights me all the time. This one doesn't. (Image stolen from amazon!)

The little tin on the top is full of brass shavings to clean your tip. It's a lot deeper than it looks as it's recessed into the body of the station.

The Amazon UK link is https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07X3CZ3FJ? ... asin_image if anyone in interested. Not too shabby for £44 which was a "bargain" as I saved a whole £1.00! :D


Cheers,
Norm.

Thanks Tinyfgpa.
