For anyone looking, Frys has the Hakko FX-888D on sale for $70 free shipping. Best deal youll find anywhere on a very nice soldering iron. This is the lowest I ever recommend to anyone serious about soldering. LINK
I personally recommend this famous Hakko clone for $60 that even comes with a tweezer wand. I actually own 2 of these. They stack right on top of each other nicely too.
Plus you can get an assortment of tips off ebay or amazon in a pack of 10 for about $10 that works with it :)
