      Won't deal with them, I tried getting some filters from them and they wanted $25 postage to send the things in an envolope or $20 to send via courier. When I questioned them they said it was to put people off from using snail mail. No wonder I buy all my electronic stuff O/S

        Local guy with basically hako copies and a heap of other stuff. I have found the spares service excellent and the prices more than fair. My desoldering station is excellent, no complaints.

          I bought my Hakko from here in Bowen Hills in Brisbane

          www.prime-electronics.com.au

          Their web site is crap so a phone call or walk-in to their showroom might be best.

          They're in Southport and Flemington (NSW) as well.

            got my hakko clone from Wagner in Ashfield, Sydney

            they also sell genuine Hakko replacement parts

            http://www.wagner.net.au

            website is pretty sparse (apart from their catalogue - which does not contain prices) so best to phone them

                bought a hakko clone from jaycar. they use all the hakko gear such as the tips. temp controlled, it's been great and it was on special for $80. that was like 12 months ago. works fantastic. i highly recommend for the coin.
                jaycar also have an assortment of replacement tips. i recommend buying a tiny one for the fiddly stuff as the standard one is pretty meaty... or was it the other way around... had 2 year warranty i think also.

                      The Micron Sureshot is imported by Altronics over here in Perth.
                      I worked at Altronics about 11 years ago. The first series of the Sureshot was a bit crappy IMO they used to clog up abit but I'm sure they would have fixed this by now.
                      Desoldering IC's was the trickiest because it didn't remove all of the solder and you had to finish off with desolder braid., but i guess for the price it was ok considering the price of the really good ones like Hakko.
                      This same one on Ebay is $100 less than in the Altronics 2006 cattledog.

                          Anyone got any thoughts on this? I dont really want to be spending $400 to desolder chips that cost a buck or two. Wonder if this would be a good solution.

                            From another thread on the Dicksmith special the soldering and desoldering station for $299, bought one a couple of weeks ago and it works great, can not do smd but for all others its a treat, bought myself a couple of different tips and some extra filters, for the price you can't beat it.
                            If it isn't broke then don't fix it!

                              Yeh I bought one of those shortly after making that post, took me a little while to get good at it but I can now get chips to practically fall out of boards.
