I’ve used the Weller wes51 for about 10 years. This is my second and it’s time to replace it. I’d like to upgrade. I’ve replaced the iron a a few times and many tips. They don’t last.

Recommendations for the best units under $300, please.

Mostly through board components.

I’m looking at the Hakko 951. Tips = Copper-iron chrome alloy. (?) Ive never had to know anything about tips. I’ve always just replaced my Weller tips with OEM tips and I think they’re stainless.
