      It looks like the hakko fx-888 is now the fx-888D which is a digital control versus the analog control, any opinions on this? wondering if the digital aspects of it will last as long as the analog…

        I haven’t seen inside one myself, but would expect it to be fine. Hakko don’t usually get it wrong.

        I have the 888D, and have used the 888. What I will say is, the digital interface is crap. I miss the analog knob, a lot simpler. That said, the rest of the station is great. So if you’re not the kind of person who changes temperature often, then it’s still a great station.

      Does anyone know the type of shelves used in the background? I am looking for shelves which will hold my test equipment above my bench. Deep enough that it doesn’t hang over of course.
