I’ve been very happy with my Hakko FX888D iron. The Weller I used to use went through tips quite often but I’ve had much better luck with the Hakko. I need to get some practice at SMD work as some of the through-hole components are getting harder to find, plus some magazines now (e.g. Practical Electronics, and Silicon Chip) are publishing kits that use SMD components.

Now that we've relocated post fires, I'm looking at rebuilding my electronics workshop. This is a bit O/T here but this group probably has more experience in that vein than almost any other out there. I'm particularly looking for some suggestions for soldering tools for thru-hole work for Norberto's awesome boards but also want to try some SMD stuff. Other comments and suggestions on the "ideal workbench" are welcome - one rarely gets the chance to start from scratch!
