A New Soldering IronThis year at the Dayton Hamvention 2012 gathering I decided to buy myself a new soldering iron. I read reviews of the Hakko 888 throughout the year and I decided that if I found one at the Hamvention I would buy it! I was pleasantly suprised to discover that B&D Enterprises had Hakko soldering equipment for sale. Without hesitation I plopped down $105 and walked away with a Hakko FX888 soldering iron and five extra soldering iron tips.
This soldering iron replaced my old faithful Weller WES51 soldering station. I like the Hakko FX888 even better and I look forward to using it for many years to come.
