I have had soldering station Weller WESD51 for 5 years now, works great. I have been using this soldering station very often for soldering through hole and surface mount components including components in size 1206, 0805, 0603 and SOIC ICs. It is easy to set accurate soldering tip temperature on this iron - this is very important when we have to solder a temperature sensitive components.

The WESD51 soldering station has been developed for industrial manufacturing as well as for rework and repair sector. Station comes with power unit, detachable 50W iron (PES51), iron holder and tip-cleaning sponge, and 3-wire power cord. There are power on/off switch, power-on LED, and temperature adjusting knob on the power unit. The WESD51 has microprocessor control and digital display. It is digital readout version of the popular analog WES51 soldering station. The unit display shows a "Read" mode by default, which displays the current temperature of the tip. To switch into the "Set" mode, turn the temperature control knob slightly and the display will show the current "Set" temperature. In other words, while adjusting the temperature, the display shows your target temperature and then automatically switches to show the current tip temperature.

Tip temperature is adjustable in the range of 350 ºF to 850 ºF (177 ºC to 454 ºC), temperature accuracy is : +/-10 °F to +/- 6° C. The station can be switched between Degrees "F" and Degrees "C"- the factory default is ºF.
Grounded soldering iron tip, a digital readout, zero power switching and anti-static design allow the WESD51 soldering station to meet high quality standards including CE mark.
This soldering station will automatically shut off power to the tool and digital display after 99 minutes of inactivity of the iron.
The WESD51 comes with PES51 soldering pencil. The PES51 is slim, comfortable pencil style iron features a Nichrome wound stainless steel element construction, a non-burning silicone rubber cord, and large selection of tips in various styles including tips for surface mount devices. Changing the tips is easy and quick
The iron uses ET series soldering tips. The assortment of tips is very extensive - there are tips for heavy duty work to fine tips for SMD including conical, long conical, single flat, screwdriver and narrow screwdriver soldering tips.

The WESD51 soldering station is "one of a kind" and I will strongly recommend it. It is real pleasure to work with WESD51 soldering station. This station can regularly be found in the $129 to $150 (USD) price range. Absolutely worth the money!

I give 5 stars out of 5 to this soldering station.
