  • I bought this around the first of the year in 2012 and have frankly loved it to death. Coming from the $15 “variable solder station” thing I bought off ebay (which never worked right, and the tip eventually broke off in such a way that I’d need to weld it), there is just no comparison. For the price you just can’t beat it. I also really like that it says “Sparkfun” on it :)

    Unfortunately, today when I wanted to change the tip out, when I took the tip off the ceramic heating element crumbled and a bit fell off. Does Sparkfun offer any replacement options for the wand? Or can you point me in the direction of one?

No public wish lists :(
