Weller WLC100 40-Watt Soldering Station

Weller’s WLC100 soldering station is a nice option for those just starting out in a DIY/electronics hobby. It includes everything you need for basic soldering work:

  • A soldering iron (of course) with cushioned foam grip.
  • An ST3 iron-plated ⅛” screwdriver tip.
  • The base unit, which has a built-in iron stand.
  • A natural sponge tip-cleaning pad, which the base also has a side compartment for.

That base unit has a variable-power control knob, which can be adjusted between 5 and 40 watts to tackle the particular needs of each soldering job.

Get it for $40 on Amazon.
