I'll just point out that the base unit is essentally a 24V 50VA transformer, and will happilly power a Weller TCP iron. In fact it's what I use for my TCP and have done for about 30 years now.

So even if the tips for the RS iron are unobtainable, the unit is still very useful.

Angry Re: RS Soldering Station FOC

Tony , thanks for pointing that out , the iron can be removed from the unit via a 3 pin plug on the front of the unit . 30 years , that`s quality for you , very few things made in England now , my latest Antex was made in China . Regards, Tim.
