    Reading these replies, I feel much better about having bought a cheap, used Hakko 472D base and going through and servicing it -- at least I was replacing wear items, not correcting design problems Sounds like it cost me about the same, too.

    Why was somebody getting rid of a Hakko? I thought everybody swore by those?
    My vintage systems: Tandy 1000 HX, Tandy 1000 RSX, and some random Pentium in a Hewitt Rand chassis...

    Some people keep a classic car in their garage. Some people keep vintage computers. The latter hobby is cheaper, usually takes less space, and is less likely to lead to a fatal accident.

    Industrial surplus. The 472D is an older model, too.
