Base dimensions?

I want to make a small shelf to keep my, soon to arrive, station off my bench. Could someone confirm these base dimensions?

Main box: 140mm x 111mm
Iron stand: 152mm x 76mm

Cheers.

Ive bought these THESE TIPS on the 22nd. When they arrive, Ill let people know if theyre any good.

I received my soldering station on Thursday and Im very pleased with it.
I have done a couple of things to it. Ive resoldered all the Earth contacts, at the transformer and circuit board, because they looked poorly done and somewhat dry.
I also filed a flat slope on the supplied tip which makes it much more useful than the needle tip.

I don't think you should file the tip. I believe they are iron clad and filing it will remove the plating/coating and ruin it.

What does it matter? It's crap as was and now I'm able to use it to actually solder plugs and wire, while having a whole bunch of cheap tips coming in the post.

It doesn't. You've already ruined that one. Just wanted to let you know so don't go filing all the new ones.

Just trying to help buddy...

The tip isn't ruined, it functions perfectly for my soldering needs. If over time it gets eaten away then at least I got my money's worth instead of just binning a tip that was useless to me in the first place.

They look like the ones i brought for my HK soldering station which were also for Hakko,yes they do work really well but i did get the odd one where the hole was a bit to small,but i soon sorted that out and mine also came from an ebay seller.

Great thread! I was needing to upgrade from my garage beater Weller and stumbled across this thread. I got the unit in yesterday and so far so good, though I've only made a few connections. I've skimmed most of the 33 pages here, but have not seen anyone mention the ceramic in the handle not fitting snuggly in the tip. I ordered the tips suggested a few pages ago from amazon. For one they are a little loose, and two I think its odd that my ceramic has a metal sleeve on it. The better units I've seen have bare ceramic fitting snug in the tip. But then one YouTube vid I seen on this unit, when the guy unscrewed his handle he also had bare ceramic. Seems to me that all the metal tube on the ceramic would do is slow thermal transfer.

Still happy, as its my first soldering station, just wondering your thoughts. Maybe there is a recommended handle that would fit my tips better?

One last note. I had to take it apart to see how neat things were. I noticed on the back of the board that a couple traces were built up with solder, which I know isn't uncommon. The odd thing is the solder didn't cover the whole trace from point to point. Isn't that defeating the purpose? Anyways, I filled in the missing solder. Not sure if the performance is affected any, but it gives me peace of mind. I also didn't care for the soldered grounds on the transformer so I cut and crimped them on.

You got it the other way around! The metal sleeve over ceramic is the BETTER unit. I have the older bare ceramic. Over time and with some tight tips, the ceramic crumbles. It is very fragile. When that happens you see some of the internal nichrome heating coils. Not good that way when there's a an air gap from the broken away ceramic. Luckily it still works fine.

The snug/no snug is a function of the tips and not the heating unit. I bought one of these 10 assorted tips set from eBay and some are loose, some are too tight (unusable) and some are just right. Luckily the ones I needed are just right.

One of these days I'll get a replacement heating unit with a metal sleeve!
