My favorite for the last 20 years has been some version of a regulated
iron GC was selling under the XYTronix name. But they are about $130 the
last time I bought one. Great iron, just dial up the temp you want and
give it 30 seconds to get there. If you see a weller, please move to the
other side of the street, cooper tools bought them 20 years ago and
they've been crap ever since. OTOH, I have a weller WTCP-1 thats over 40
years old & still works fine. Looks pretty rough though, its had a LOT
