          1. That’s the exact same iron that was recommended to me by ACK Electronics here in Atlanta – I have to wait for my birthday in April, but I could really use it today.

          2. It would be great to upgrade my $5 (or less, i got it on sale for $3) harborfreight iron… but at least they’re so cheap that if I break one I can get a new one easy. Its better than using a not-so-greatly rated “The Source” iron… I do wish it had a finer tip though.. i think i know what to ask for my b-day- that or electronics giftcards..
