I got a reasonably cheap Chinese air/soldering station from amazon (~£80). It has served me well for a few years now. and uses hakko tips which is a plus. I’ve used the air a number of times but nowhere near as often as the iron but when I’ve needed it it has been invaluable If you can afford it tho...
