depends what you mean by 'not too expensive'. From all the review I've read the HAKKO FX-888D gets highly recommended. Unfortunately for me these aren't available here in the UK but I have found some other good options the XYTRONIC LF-3000 looks good.
Thanks for your post and taking your word for it, I just ordered one from Amazon. As to "not too expensive", that seems to be an oxymoron when used describing a good soldering station....lol Now if it only comes with the correct tip(s) for our work....not too well described as to the tip(s) that come with the unit but it did include a free(??) wire cutter...lol
