Successor for dead Solderingstation, JBC CD-2BQF?

(1/8) > >>

oz1sqt:
My 15 years old 90 Watt Quick303B has died, I was fund of it but it have made me a bit spoiled, therefor I'm looking fore its successor, for hobby use ...

I have set my eyes on the JBC CD-2BQF, definitely at the top of my budget with it's 360 Euro incl VAT ($428 US).

I have set some criteria for the new station:

* Heating element in the tip
* Easily accessible range of tips
* Hibernation mode
* Auto stand-by The last to criteria was present in my old station.

If I look at Weller, I have to go to the WX series to meet my criteria, where the cheapest WX 1010 is 150 Euro more expensive than the JBC CD-2BQF.

I have an TS100 as additional soldering iron. I have discovered the TS100 with it's 65 Watt have some issues with larger ground-planes and i have had some similar issues with my old 90Watt station. 

Therefor I ask for other suggestions? I did look at QUICK 1200A but after searching this forum, i continued my search. And to make it more difficult I live en Europe so Pace in not an option, and i don't like the Hakko GUI.

Psi:
I like my TMT-9000, and it's in your price range by the look of it.

(Just FYI, you cant use both the outputs at the same time sadly, but it does heat up super fast, I timed it at 6 seconds until solder melts.)

oz1sqt:
Am i right, it has fixed temperature, is that desired? and has only 40 watts?

Yes, JBC tips are readily available, and their selection is second to none, but the prices mean you likely won’t take advantage of that and will end up with just a few tips.

Pace is readily available in Europe. Farnell (dk.farnell.com for you) carries pretty much the entire Pace range in all of Europe. So I’d recommend the ADS200.

oz1sqt:
The PACE ADS-200 with the IBS stand looks interesting, but the range of tips is somewhat more limited and mostly conical. It is currently in backorder, is it a new product at Farnell?
But when I calculate VAT on the PACE ADS-200, it will end up a bit more expensive than the JBC CD-2BQF when i include 4 corresponding tips.

I have also looked at other pages in EU with similar limited and mostly conical selection. I found the tip price for "normal"-tips is quite similar between JBC and PACE when i calculate VAT from pages in EU
