What I thought it really looks like the pin broke but left base behind I'll see what comes loose when I cannabilize the 3200g for pins

Really, either is probably fine at the given price point. I'd go with whichever has better local availability for tips/etc.

FWIW, I have the original FX888 (analog temp control dial) and it's been great for my hobbyist/home repair needs. I have read that the controls on the digital version are wonky. No idea on the Weller in that respect.

Either station will work just fine... The only advantage that the Hakko has over the Weller is the warmup time 20s on the Hakko to the Weller's 28s. As the above poster said use which ever has the better parts availability. I am more partial to the Weller but that is just me. I have been using Weller for years. Whatever you do though look for one that has analog temp control you will get alot finer control over the heat.

Thank you guys I'll go analog with this since my heatgun is also analog. Where I live availability is Amazon or eBay.

Have to watch vendors my local industrial electronics shop says Weller and Hakko counterfeits are commonplace online.

people are ravin about this thing. cheap enough that it might be worth a try.

https://pine64.com/product-category/pinecil/?v=0446c16e2e66

That is pretty slick, Looks like it would be pretty slick for smaller projects... I think I will order one and give it a try. I am pretty partial to my wellers and xtronic 4000 series soldering station but I am going to give it a go... I wonder what the warmup time will be, that is the only make or break deal for me.

none seem to do anything its set to DC power have tried the red usb c cable from the pine store, with the desktop power box, nothing tried the labtop brick same thing, watched the vids on it they seem to just turn it on and it works, mine on other hand acts like it cant start boost does nothing. i may infact have a defective unit if it doesnt wanna heat up with the different power inputs iv tried.

have you read the manual to learn how to use it correctly? its not just a turn it on a go. if you have, contact support. why would you buy another if its a dud it will be replaced.

this didnt need a pm

iv read over the Manuel a few times contacted support which directed me to a wiki which i tried and everything iv tried seems to be some sort of hardware fault as its clearly getting the power but refuses to heat up. i looked over the power settings tried setting auto temp to 320c boost 410c but for whatever reason once its in soldering mode it just sits there content to do nothing till it goes to sleep. no mount of poking round settings seems to make it want to actually start heating.

ok

Rosin core solder just has the flux in the core of the solder.... I prefer to put flux on the components and use silver laced solder....

ahh did some digging found that rosen core stuff i have this stuff from northridge fix shop where i went to get everything so far now i just need to find good quality solder and proper tweezers that have a strong enough tips that don't bend <> outwards when i try hold something small and solder inplace.

Finally got a universal stencil that actually fit the cpu work can resume soon on repairing the pins.
