  • Sunkko vs Hakko

    Hi there

    Most people know about Hakko products.

    Has anyone used, bought or have any experience with the copy brand Sunkko?

    I am looking at a soldering station and the difference between the Hakko and the clone is about $70

    Part of me thinks go the Hakko but since my soldering is really only hobbyist stuff from time to time it may not be worth the extra cash

    Any thoughts?

    cheers

    One good thing with Hakko is parts are easy to get.
    though they are expensive.

      They left a little note on the windscreen.
      It said, 'Parking Fine.' So that was nice."

        i know that Hamish has a Hakko desolder station

        Does anyone have a Hakko soldering station

        I am looking at the 936ESD - quoted at $169 incl GST (the Sunkko is $97 - exact copy)

          Yes if you can afford the Hakko go for it. I know that with the other Hakko copy Aoyue you can interchange the parts i.e. the Hakko parts fit it. Parts for the Aoyue are also easy to get you can get them from here www.JabsPlace.co.uk if they don't have it on their web site just ask. At the end of the day you get what you pay for.

            Been searching for a alternative for parts for my AOYUE desoldering station.
            Tips are pretty much universal but the desoldering tip seems hard to get. I did a search and found this mob Stan Rubinstein Assoc., Inc.
            Took a month to get my tips but was well worth the wait, I noticed on the invoice the soldering tips i got were on back ordered so this is probably why.
            I was also chasing some fine pointed tips, was hard to decide from their pics but I got some T-LB's. these things are about 2cm long and have a really sharp point..well close enough the one i got with the station was about half the size with a sharp point, Still these will do the job specially for all those hard to reach places

            Edit: after putting in my new soldering TIP it had it written on it T-I https://store.sra-solder.com/section.php?xSec=73. live and learn.

                Yeah they seem to have the soldering tips but i can't find the desoldering gun tips which is why I used the mob above.

                  I use a Hakko 936 at work, and it's great. I highly recommend it

                        Holy crap man those tips are expensive, paid a fraction for them at Stans in fact for 1 of those tips i bought 5 desoldering and 2 soldering tips.
                        I'm going to do another order from Stan's soon, I just noticed they have spring filters today

                          Maybe there dearer because there genuine Hakko....i don't really know.
                          I don't use a de-soldering station and haven't had to buy them.

                            Hakko Vs Sunkko ,

                            Easy Hakko = Quality
                            Sunkko = Rubbish , this includes many other crappy clones .

                            I have a couple of 701's , 900 and 936 Hakko's , One of the 701's get used all day everyday , I average between 1 and 2 desoldering Tips per week at about $40 from WES is Sydney .

                            I also have a brand new Sunkko 701 Clone that I tested in heavy use like the Hakko , the desoldering Iron is complete crap , the heater is placed in a different place in the handle , the pump is weak and tips are crap , After 4 hours continuous use on monitors it was dead , had new desoldering handle supplied under warranty , this one lasted nearly 4 days and also died under the pressure .

                            The look so similar to the real thing but they are vastly different in more ways than you could imagine .
                            My advice if you are considering the Sunkko 701 save your money and give it to a charity it's not worth the space it takes up on the bench!
