Solder Irons | 1 September, 2005

Hi All,

We are currently evaluating solder irons and I was looking for some input.

The two irons we are look at are the PACE WS-100 and HAKKO FP-102.

The reasons for these choices are, ease of use, control over temp and the usual big ones, cost and cost of operation.

Looking for input as to durability, ease of operation, tip life and general usability.

Or any other input, thanks for the help

Not familiar with the WS100, but the FP's work well. In my travels I see the yellow and blue everywhere.
