After all my years, I finally have a REAL soldering iron/station.

Congratz! Now get that solder melting :slight_smile:

Darn straight!

@ kurtnelle - While you are spending money your next product should be an anti-static mat, It could save you a lot of headaches and money!

@ Davef, I have one! Thanks for the advice.

@ kurtnelle - Cant see it in the pic, it should be part of your soldering station!

I unfolded the mat. It’s the red block under the pc. It’s by RadioShack so I hope that it is good. I used to try my hand at CMOS electronics however they would never work for me. That’s when I found out about static electricity and CMOS not being friends.
