Thanks for the info, knowing that I've looked at the photos I took when I opened my WXMT and I think I see the hole the pogo pin mounts in. Should be easy to add one in parallel to the normal earth connection so that the handpiece is compatible with either type of RTW cartridge. Will post pics if/when I mod it.

Now I need to make some decisions as to which cartridges to buy - has anyone got experience using the Non-Wettable options (e.g. RTW6NW), or the wide ones?
I'm assuming the former help stop the part sticking to the iron once placed/removed, and the latter are obviously for lifting SOICs/TSSOPs, but as usual Weller has very little info available and I have no experience as to how well they actually work at those jobs.

Edit: a reflection in the photo had me fooled - no hole there for pogo pin :(
