I'm waiting for mine to show up as well.
What kind of iron is that one (as well as your home bench iron)
I'm looking into a new iron for home and want a decent one.

Thank's
Mark...

That is one I got from Radio shack about 10 years ago, still works great. My bench iron is an old piece of crap I got about 20 years ago but it works fine. If I was getting a new iron for the bench today I would probably get this one:

You could get a cheap one and probably never have any problems. The only place you need a decent iron for is the ground pads on the PDB.

Nice..So a iron in the 40watt range is good then?
$40.00 is not a bad price for a weller

Yeah, should be enough. You might also look at their professional line which is temperature controlled. They have one without a station that costs only a little more.
