Amazing soldering ironBy Keith Laurence
What a difference compared to my old iron. Heats up quickly, hold it's great, perfect solder beads, lightweight and comfortable to hold.

Fantastic soldering iron and excellent customer serviceBy Fiona M Bell
My Weller soldering iron tip looked as if it needed replaced so I ordered a new one, an hour later soldering iron no longer working, so phoned customer services and ordered the Hakko FX601 as advised by Creative Glass Guild. They kindly cancelled the order for the replacement Weller Tip.
I can’t believe how incredibly light the Hakko iron is I found I started holding it like a pencil and had more control and was able to solder much much faster. It heats up incredibly quickly and I like the fact it has temperature control and I will be able to use it for both lead came and copper foil.
I understand they have many tip designs for different applications and it looks like the replacement tips are reasonably priced.

I’d heard good things about the Hakko FX601 and I wasn’t disappointed! Great iron, easy to use and temperature adjustments gives much better control of solder.
