Laguz75,

Take a look at this Hakko clone from Hobby King, (some links below) I got one recently and I'm very impressed with how well it works, cost me $25 shipped to New York from their North East USA warehouse. I picked up some more tips in assorted sizes, it comes with a very fine tip which would be great for those zif's, but you'll need a larger tip for wire 20 ga and above, you can get tips from amazon. Also there is a link to a youtube video showing side by side comparison to this station and a real Hakko, the guy opens the box and shows the insides of both of them. I was quite surprised just how heavy the unit is and it looks like they made a couple improvements since that video. The temperature control is very accurate, I checked it against my Fluke meter with a Fluke thermocouple, I didn't have to adjust mine but there is an adjustment for the temp if needed. For the price, it's a pretty good station and works very well, I soldered some 12 ga wires to a 200 board and the 510 a couple days ago and had no problems getting a very impressive solder joint, key was a larger tip that wouldn't cool as soon as it touched the joint, and good no clean flux.

I bought the wrong ones there like 5" but it looks like I can cut them down to the size I need. I am going to try soldering 24 gage wire on just to see if I can I might have a ideal for making a detachable face plate like some car stereos have. Once my boards come in that will be the real test. I have a 200 but the screen holder is glued on so I couldn't try out the ribbons.

so are you saying that the screen works fine with your 5" extension? you played with it a bit no glitches or anything? like you said would be really cool as a better quick disconnect than directly at the board with the ziff. using a ziff to pin adapter would open up a lot of possibilities with board installation too.

I'm waiting for my 40 and 200 to get here today (about 2pm cst) so I can try it out and see if it does work

It would be amazing if there was a true extension cable rather than the parts to create one.  The VS one has the screen in a "far away" place, so once we get a look inside, we may be able to source something.

Think you may find the VS rdna40 uses standard screen/ribbon.

I don't see any way the VaporShark DNA 200 can be done like they did the rDNA 40

Will be interesting what VS comes with. Maybe with no daughter board this time?

Maybe the screen is not on the bottom as we think it is.

I've seen pictures with the 200w screen on the bottom somewhere before, unless it was a pre dna200 that was photoshopped with the 200w display?

Yea...I was referring to the pre-production renders of the DNA200.

Some folks in the RC world indicated that these folks could make a custom cable (qty of 1 and above):
