JBC Tools CD-1BB, T210-A, PA120-A Customer Reviews

While searching ourselves on Google today we came across a really interesting Electronics Blog.  Not only that, but customers were talking about JBC Tools.  After reading several posts, we found a member who recently purchased the JBC CD-1BB soldering station from us.  He certainly seems to be a big fan of the product.  

Here is his post:

Robrenz Re: JBC T210-A (and PA120-A) Handpiece Compared to Some Other Tools
"I have the JBC CD-1BB compact station it was $390.00 US  It has the 245 handle which is still light as a large pen. I is truly a dream to solder with. It has the same or better thermal response as a Metcal but totaly adjustable temperature. Heatup time from cold is rediculously fast. and tip change takes about 3 seconds and you never touch the tip. I personaly would not worry about a two output unit. there are plenty of very small tips for the 245 handle that will allow you to do the small work but then you can just stick a heavy tip in when necessary and have 130 watts of instantaneous power at your disposal.

Check out this video of mine using the very wide tip on the 245 handle. The temperature setting on that tip is only 260 C to not shift the resistance of the resistors from overheating. No other iron has the thermal response necessary to solder that much area that fast at so low of a temperature.  You will never be the same after JBC ;D ;D ;D

"I have AD4300 and AD2700, JBC is way ahead of all stations that I had a chance to use."

"If I didn't already have to much invested in Metcal tips, I would definately be tempted to buy the JBC."

Jahonen JBC T210-A (and PA120-A) handpiece compared to some other tools
"For my work, having a normal iron and tweezers is a must, since I often must lift and swap SMD components back and forth during prototype testing along with normal soldering tasks. Those PA120-A's had no problem with components attached to ground planes of a multilayer board, and I tried some very hefty PCB's (although not with particularly thick copper but thick enough to cause problems with wimpy soldering tools), too.  I think I have my mind "poisoned" already from that JBC experience :P "
