    I use a Weller WES51. I think its a 50W iron, and will go to 850. A great all around station, and wide selection of tips.

    I still use the stock screw on both of my rigs, and both have KHZ mounts. Never had to shorten the screw.

    Make sure you are using both the split and flat washer.

    Looks like a good deal to me. But I agree...take a battery with you and test it out to make sure the electronics don't have any issues. And go over the chassis and make sure its structurally sound as...
