Where to get tips for Weller WD1
« on: March 09, 2012, 01:13:15 pm »
I thought the point of buying a well known make was the ease of getting spares. Not the case it seems with the Weller WD1 soldering station!

Does anyone know a source of tips (preferably in the UK) for these items?

If I remember correctly, those soldering stations use the LT tips series.
You can find them at almost any Weller reseller! Just as an example, check RS Components:

To my knowledge it very easy to find them (at least here in Italy!)

Which iron are you using?

I ask, as the WP80 uses the LT series, while the WMP uses the NT series.

As per where to get them, Element 14 carries both (search results for both LT and NT tips on a single page).

On the odd chance you meant the WD1M (uses the WMRP iron), they carry those as well.

Ah thanks, I should have looked at the iron not the station. It's a WP80.

Life is good again!
