it's one third of the price of a hakko, usual at 300 dollars range. I do
have one these cheap model and it works nice.
You need some practice though, the solder must be completely melted before
pulling the trigger, so you must touch the pin with the nozzle interior
wall and then you can feel when the solder melts.
Adding a little solder for those 30 year old solder joints will help a well.
