So my mechanical keyboard adventure continues and my next one will be a non-hot-swap PCB, so I will need to solder the switches in.
I am hoping I would then learn a new skill from this and broaden its application in due course!
Looking for ideas on a soldering station which is:
3) accurate and consistent temperatures
4) Good for general electronic/PCB work.
5) I don't really care about the heat up time.
6) n00b friendly
There seem to be a million Chinese clones around on Trademe and I am not sure which are as good as the original and which are trash! Hakka seems to be the name-brand of choice, but the NZ prices for those are outrageous compared to the US, so not going there. DOSS seems to have a good selection and are an Australian owned outfit...though I am sure it is all still Chinese clone units!
Any recommendations ideas? Want to keep it below $150 and ideally under $100 if possible, but I also want a unit good enough to make things as easy as possible for me, rather than something I am always fighting with!
