I've been using one of these for about 7 years and it works great. CS has a good selection of reasonably priced soldering stations.

Just came across this soldering station from Hobby King for around $16. Looks very good for the price.

Soldering station

I have a new Yihua 936 soldering station for sale. I bought two of these thinking I would use one as a backup but the one I am using has worked flawlessly so I don't think I will have need for it. I purchased at least 6 different irons and guns but this is so much better than any of them. Do a search on the net to see them. They are pretty heavy to ship, probably around 8 Lbs. I'll take 55 for mine shipped to you.

I got an edsyn 951SX from HMC electronics really cheap. I would recommend a cheaper weller for you, though. HMC has really good prices.
