Editor's Notes

February 05, 2019:

Took a look at both battery powered and butane options, selecting the Hakko FX-901 and Portasol P-1 Professional as top choices, respectively. Both offer ease of use and greater durability than many. Also added several less expensive options for the casual hobbyist, including the All Splendid Mini and Tooluxe Battery Powered. We ultimately decided to omit the Dremel 2000-01, as it's difficult to find replacement tips for it, and the Weller BL60MP, which has a couple of design quirks that undercut its safety.
