What soldering iron do you use/recommend Ryan?
Hello! I use an older digital Weller unit but if I were to buy a new one, I'd choose a https://amzn.to/3c9zduG Weller WE1010NA Digital Soldering Station. It's not the cheapest out there but for 70w, digital stability, and a brand name, it's a really great price. For comparison, the unit I use is over $1000 and I never use the extra features other than the soldering iron. The prices have really dropped with Weller over the years which is fantastic.
Additionally, I highly recommend using one of these for $10. https://amzn.to/2Vq84Nq Hakko 599B-02 Wire-type soldering iron tip cleaner. The brass will not cool down the tip like water and a sponge would.
Hope that helps! Let me know if you pick either or both of these up!
