Are you looking for just a soldering iron, or a whole set of tools for a basic electronics bench?

If you're looking for the whole set, we have Ladyada's toolkit over in the shop:

Most of the parts are available individually, and the soldering iron from the kit is a good one.. adjustable, and with enough range to handle most jobs. If you want to step up to a full soldering station, the Hakko 888D is a good unit:

It costs more than the average stick-type iron, but once you use one you'll be hooked.
