Please send me the info....thx

Also for anyone who's got one, did it come with the stand and cleaning wire dish thingy? I'm about to pull the trigger on ebay for 250.00..?

Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

I ordered the FR-300 (along with the Hakko 888D soldering station and some extras) last Wednesday and it showed up on Friday.
Put the 300 to use for the first time this morning and man does it make the once tedious job of desoldering easy! So cleeeeean! No more stupid plastic solder sucker! No more messy work and no more having to go back and forth to get all the solder out. I'm really glad I finally decided to pick one of these up.
Thanks for the discount guys!

I bought the FR-300 about 5 months ago, used it twice both time I could not get the damn thing to clear out the solder from of the holes. Not sure if I got a bum unit or what. I even bought another tip for it same results. Curiously the vacuum tube thing developed hairline cracks after the second use. Any of you guys had issues with it?

Hi yes I did. I looked it up online just to make sure. I have an update, a tip of the hat to the B+D team, I emailed them explained the issue they offered to check it for me and if found bad they would replace it. I shipped it out already. They've checked it and they will be sending me a new one. So once I get it I'll give it another shot. The tube cracking should have been a sign that something was not right.

I go the new one yesterday and tried it out today....WOW! It's a breeze to work with. *Sigh* thinking of the number of boards and chips I could have saved if I had this a couple years ago.
