I hear that some guy do some good deal by buying a WELLER iron solder station from USA to Europe.
The main problem is that the transformer is not the same 110V, but it is only thing to change.
The only thing to find is the same part that working in 240v.
The price finally is the half of a retail one.
Someone had already done that?
