Same here, great product that did what it stated, plus won events and my soldering iron never failed me, loved it so much have it still and still going strong. Tried a few things they made and were well though out and designed. He made a difference to a lot of people and must be looking down at us knowing he made a difference.

I managed to get a new old stock one in the summer from another racer, I was made up. I've had my iron since 1996. It would be amazing if they were brought back into manufacturer.
