I'm looking at getting a new Soldering iron or station. I'm looking for something that can handle my hobby needs (light Brass work) and something also geared to doing electronics repair when the need arises. I'm looking to keep the price under $100 bucks if possible. Suggestions?

thanks

24V Weller station with one of their 50W "Maganastat" irons? - you can change only the bit shape/temp depending on your needs

Take a gander at the Hakko 936 solder station:

Comes with temp control, switchable irons and a bunch of other fun things for around $70 new. The Greebster pointed this one out for me ;)

Wish I would have seen that before I bought my weller wes50
It has almost the same features for 40 dollars less. :(
