Description: Temperature controlled, anti-static soldering station with a digital readout. This is an impressive unit with a clear LED readout. The iron attains the specified temperature after a few seconds and can be dialed in to any temperature within 1-2C. An excellent alternative to the Radio Shack fire-starter you are used to - at an equally excellent price! Unit includes base unit, soldering iron with tip, and stand with sponge. SparkFun has converted their irons in thier assembly room to these lead-free stations.
Recommend are the LF-LI or LF-LB solder tips (pictured) to replace the stock tip if you are working on fine pitch components.
