The Weller Soldering Iron was one of my Christmas presents. I didn't exactly get the one I wanted, but it gets the job done. The iron tip was big on what I usually work on (such as components, PCB, and smaller projects), but one of the best part of the Weller Soldering Iron is that, you can always change the tip into smaller or bigger tips. The next thing about it is it comes with the basic sponge to wipe your tip, iron holder, and an outlet to switch to other soldering irons. It doesn't take up too much space and easy to manage with the cords. I worked on many projects with this and must say the grip to hold the iron is just fantastic. With all the helpful things that comes with this product it helped me a lot and I can always keep my iron tip that came with it if I ever need to work on the tough jobs. Tough jobs like soldering a copper pipe for you plumbing. The last thing that was very appreciated by yours truly, is that the soldering iron was pretty easy to clean, and the sponge helps. And a word of warning to all who plans on using this, use distilled water to wet the sponge and not the plain old tap water, because it can ruin any soldering iron.
