Default Soldering Iron/Station?

im currently using a radioshack 15W soldering iron, and although it works, im looking to upgrade to something of higher quality

after looking around a bit, i was wondering what you guys think of the Weller WES51?

Weller is a good brand. Make sure you're willing to pay for it though.

Depending on you budget/how much electronics you want to do a rework station might also be an option. I've been drooling over the 3 in one stations with hot air, soldering iron and fume removal.

They've sure gone down in price. I got one like a year ago for about $170. I thought they'd cost a lot more, but they really don't. In the end though, the soldering iron is what I use most and the smoke sucker only occasionally comes in handy.

I use a WD 1 with a NT1 tip...I have no complaints with it. It heats to preset in about 10 seconds.

I also use EC1002 for more basic soldering. It holds a good temp and there are alot of different tips for it.

I use this one. It's cheap, and it works just fine.
I've been meaning to attach an ammeter to it, though.
