Review Summary For : Weller WCC100 Soldering Station
Reviews: 1MSRP: 120.00
The Weller WCC100 Soldering Station is an electronically controlled station that Weller developed to meet government specifications (1990s)-- including the Military Standard 2000. The temperature is adjustable from 350 degrees F to 850 degrees F and is stable within 10 degrees F at idle. The 40 watt pencil is fitted with an ETA tip and can be used with the full range of Weller ET series tips to cover many soldering applications. A zero voltage circuit ensures that no high voltage spikes are present to damage sensitive components.

This model was DISCONTINUED by Weller in 1999.
The Weller WES51 is the Weller replacement station (uses the same "ET" tips).

I acquired a WCC100 soldering station, via eBay, that was non-functional in December 2007. I was able to repair this WCC100 station, due to my ability to obtain key parts from Weller distributors that still had parts inventories

In my case, the temperature sensor (WCC103) had failed (open) in this station’s iron.

Earlier 5-star review posted by W9GB on 2006-08-20

==This review was mistakenly posted to the Weller WLC100 model review ==
== These models are totally different designs - NO interchangable or related parts, other than the form factor of the plastic molded base!! ==

My 1999 Weller Model WCC100 station was a $30.00 promotion [close-out of model] and it has been 100 percent reliable for me.
The WCC100 is light blue in color that tends to fade to an institutional light green in UV light.

The soldering pencil is hard-wired into the base unit. So IF I had to find something wrong with mine, it would be the absolutely tasteless Color the plastic fades as exposed to UV light!

For almost Six Years of fully dependable service... In Spite of the Color... it warrants the WV4R FIVE Star Rating.

73 es God bless,


[BTW, the WCC100 is now discontinued - replaced by WES51. The "ET" series tips and heater are available - BUT replacement control boards no longer made by Weller - g. beat]
