Re: Weller 8200: 55 and counting

Hey, I have one of those!

In the early 80's I bought six Weller professional soldering stations at a tech auction for almost nothing. I was able to make four good ones from the parts. The two I kept are still working today. With thermostatically controlled tips these are amazing for soldering, especially on delicate circuit boards. The 6809 computer I built around then had 1430 solder connections on each 8K static memory board! And has anyone else soldered wires to the millimeter-spaced pads deep in a hole in the back of a digital watch? Good fun!
