A desoldering iron is on my wish list, probably for next year. Which model did you buy?
I bought the Hako FR-300. It seems to have been highly recommended by Pinside members and MAACA members over the years. Desoldering irons are a little pricey unless you are doing a lot of work with them but board work is something that I have wanted to learn more about and learning for me is the most fun part of the hobby.
