Cheapest soldering station ever?!

Walmart, please have one and a bit of my hard earned Hamiltons. The description does not match the picture, and according to a review the picture does not match the actual product either, so I wonder what will actually turn up.

Well, it turned out to be a perfectly serviceable no-name 936 with a skinny tip and a nicely balanced metal stand. It was appropriately earthed and fused, and even somewhere near calibrated. In short IT VERKS and for $11.90 including tax and shipping I'd say you could do worse. I would recommend it, for example, over a salad from sweetgreen.
