I have been looking for a small soldering iron for a precision work. I got a chance to try out JBC DD-2B station (the one with possibility to connect two tools) with T210-A handpiece with some tips and I was pretty much positively impressed (or should I say amazed!). It feels pretty much like a pen with some wire at the end
Although the power is just 25 watts, it seems at least as usable as Weller WSP 80 (which has 80 watts heater) for most SMD soldering tasks I tried. Tight integration of the tip to heater works wonders. Here are some comparison pictures:
I was also amazed by the performance of JBC PA120-A precision tweezers. They are a proper size for something like 0603/0402 components (but seem to work for bigger components too by changing suitable cartridges, too) and very lightweight. Many other manufacturers seem to make those huge and clunky ones which are next to impossible to fit on a SMD component on the bottom of a narrow "canyon" without burning everything else next to it during soldering. Those tasks which were quite PITA before, were a breeze with PA120-A. Here is the scale for your reference:
My only complaint is really that JBC tools are somewhat obscure here in Finland, unlike Weller which you can buy from just about any grocery store
Hope this small experience helps if somebody else is wondering about this.
