Well, my trusty trakpower soldering station took a poop on me last night. I'm pretty sure the fuse in it blew because I accidentally plugged it in while it was powered on and now it makes a good paper weight. I tore it apart and found the fuse but it's soldered in and I have no idea what size it is. So....not wanting to be without a soldering station while I fix it I decided to buy a new one. I was pretty set on the hakko fx-951 but took a chance and bought one of these. It has a money back warranty and the heating plate on it looks like it would be perfect to flash circuit boards like a vtx. I'm pretty confident this station will make life easier and work just as good as my trakpower. Not to mention it's DIGITAL! Lol. Can't wait to play with it and see what features will be most useful.
