Hi and welcome,
You are bidding on a weller soldering iron setup. This includes a EC2100D station (variable temperature) and a EC1201 iron. Also includes a weller stand and some tips.
The iron was working fine one minute and was cold the next, the temp sensor appeared open circuit. I, being the prepared person I am, replaced the sensor with another from my "weller spares" box and everything failed to start working. The replacement sensor also appeared open circuit. I placed a variable resistor on the temp sensor wires and everything worked / iron heated up and read temp varied with the pot position. Since I have a TCP iron and also a METCAL this has been idle since and hence is offered here for spares, with the two sensors (there is none fitted in the iron at the moment).
This was a very good setup when it was working, I was intending on getting another sensor or iron for it but just never got around to it. It is offered as spares or repairs, I believe the base to be ok and just the sensor needs replacing but it is left to the buyer to decide what to do. Base lights up with 41 Deg C on read and is variable from 166 - 468 on SET. Signs of Wear and Tear / odd burn mark on base. See Pics.
