I finally have enough soldering to do to justify my first soldering iron purchase. The Hakko FX-888D seems (relatively) high end, but very popular? This is the best deal I could find. It comes with a brass sponge and some nice flush cutters, so if I add a roll of solder (lead free, rosin core, 0.8 mm) I’ll be in business?
Can anyone with more experience please confirm I’m on the right track, or suggest a superior alternative?
