Thanks for the link.


I've been looking around for a desoldering station, so this has come at just the right time. I see that the previous price was 84 (inc VAT). Still cheaper than Ebay & Amazon.


It gets good reviews too, so I'll be ordering one.

Thanks for reminding me that my Maplin badged soldering station is actually a Duratool, so I can get more soldering iron tips!
Now if only I could get round to fixing the temperature buttons so I can turn the heat down!

Pretty fast delivery too. Arrived within a few days.

I ordered the spares kit with mine. Only cost 2.40, so thought it was worth getting at the same time to save on postage.

Havent used it yet, but I've got plenty of components awaiting removal.

While we're on the subject - can anyone recommend a hot air station?
Duratool have one big unit that's an iron and hot air, or they have a separate hot air station, or other brands? Cheaper is better, but not chinese enough to cause a 240v mains short and explode like the last one! Comments welcome before I make a mistake!
