Once you go hakko you never go bakko!
I use 1.0, 1.3, and 1.6mm tips.
My hakko, after hundreds of hours in use, died last night. The heating element no longer gets hot.
I took the three screws off that holds the gray element and a wire fell off. I am going to try and repair, but I had to promptly order the fr300 to get me up and running.
BD Enterprises has the 808 heating element. I found the best deal on ebay for free shipping. Hakko part number is A1234. My heating element lasted at least 1000 hour powered up.
Got mine yesterday! Thanks Tom & Matt!
Fantastic tool, How on earth I've done without one thus far eludes me,
Made my new caps and bridges install this morning a breeze,
Gonna do the DMD board later today, Lots of little components on that board
I've had mine for a while now. Works great. It will suck the chrome of a bumper. Great price!
