I've ordered the "Minty Boost" kit, and until it will be delivered I want to buy the tools.
I'm new to the world of soldering, and therefore need your advice...
You've recommended this model "Xytronic SUPERPASE 258VL", and warned that "A low quality (ahem, $10 model from radioshack) iron may cause more problems than its worth!"
I live in Israel. Local Googling doesn't return any results for "Xytronic SUPERPASE 258VL", so it seems to be not available here. Ordering it from abroad, doesn't make sense since it's supposed to be something simple and generic...
Looking in Israeli shopping site, such as this http://www.zap.co.il/models.aspx?sog=h-handicrafttools&db463282=463292&keyword=%ee%ec%e7%ed&orderby=price
I couldn't comprehend what's "too cheap" and what's a good iron in reasonable price.
Can you please take a look at this list?
I'd like to buy the cheapest one that would not "cause more problems than its worth!"
(dividing the price in Israeli Shekels by 3.9 gives the price in US$)
Thanks in advance!
