Planning on making 2 slims, need soldering gear, any recommendations for someone with moderate experience on somewhat of a budget?
TS100 ftw <3
Seems pretty good, need to do some research too, thanks for the recommendation <3
Some more questions, what do you think about the TS80, also which tip do you like the most?
I don’t have a TS80 so idk, the USB-C thing is quite useful but it’s a different size i think. My fav tip is the PR BC2
Found someone selling an original kit on amazon with that tip, gonna keep this in mind. Will need to get my solder wick, solder and flux too
Also if i go for the ts100 im guessing the custom firmware is the way to go, atleast from what i remember reading the general chat in slack like a week ago
Weller wesd51 is what I’m using.
+1 on Weller. I’ve had a WES51 for years.
Looks good, the ts-100 fits my budget and needs better though, thank you for the recommendations.
One of those could come in handy for my work laptop bag. I end up needing a soldering iron maybe once or twice a year. Usually I take whatever piece of equipment home, fix it, then take it back the next day.
one of the best things about the ts100 and ts80, other than the quality for a cheap price, is their portability
+1 on the ts-100. small and if you break it down its ultra compact. makes it thru TSA no problem.
