    that's another good place, not the cheapest, but fast shipping and reliable vendor

    HMC was cheaper for me. They're $10 higher on the 936 (70 vs. 80), but offer free shipping on orders over $100. With the extras like solder, solder sucker, chisel tip, it's easy to get to $100+.

    I got mine from all-spec...kiesub's price is cheaper, though.

    That's the problem with Hakko. They chew through tips. I'd go with the Weller. Well, I did. This from experiences in keeping an electronic assembly line going for a couple of years. Now that I think of it, I've been on the same tip on my Weller wand for over 10 years. No bull.
