Weller WESD51 tips??
« on: January 31, 2017, 12:15:44 PM »
Anyone got a good source for new tips for the WESD51? I have been using the same tip for about 6 years now  :o and although it still works, I might be in the market to get some new ones.

Anyone know of a good place to go?

OoOoOo, i think i have the same Iron. I got 3 of them from mcmaster carr when I ordered my replacement last year. If its the same one I'll send one down to you.

Nope not the same. But they do sell them on amazon too.

I just get my conical ones from Mouser. Every time I place a Mouser order I toss one in the cart.

Locally we've a mom & pop electronics store that sells them. Probably bought some from Digikey as well.

I have one of those irons. I can say the genuine Weller tips last longer - be careful of eBay aftermarket ones even though they are cheep

Techni-Tool should have them.  They can be expensive for some things, but solder and soldering tips are often reasonable there.

Echo the eBay sentiments.  If you have a Fry's by you they normally stock them.
