Revelation: opening the Elsyn Soldapult package, I saw 3 words that are sheer magic, gearwise: Made in USA
The extra $ is well worth it; the threads on my (2nd) RS Soldavac broke after 3 mos. Opening it up, they had the thinness & consistencey of spun sugar
RS irons might be OK for your very first first forays, but, I 'd recommend getting both am Elsyn Soldapult & a Weller 35 watt iron as soon as you can afford them.

I ended up replacing my Dick Smith Electronics 100 Watt Temperature Controlled Station with a Duratech TS-1390 60 Watt station I bought from Jaycar Electronics, reason for the replacement....the 100Watt Station needed a replacement iron and I couldn't source one anywhere....
