Good piece of equipment... imho worth the money if you're struggling with cheapo solder stuff now.

The local electronics store here prices everything like the Internet and competition doesn't exist. They also still think the Canadian dollar is nowhere near parity to the USA dollar.

How they stay in business is a mystery to me. They must get a lot of government business with my hard earned tax dollars.

For the same item, they are charging $140 with their "new lower Canadian pricing".

The rate of my actual fixing things has slowed down a lot. I do more "virtual" repairs now that anything. I would love to get this station though.
