  3. Drew says:

    SO KEWT!

  4. Sometimes we just need a laugh instead of a hack? I guess so ;-)

  5. Jaguarius says:

    I guess the real april fools joke is that they lied about the previous joke being the last :P

  6. Thopter says:

    It strikes me as odd that one would need a soldering iron to assemble the soldering iron kit.

    @Thopter

    Long ago, the first soldering iron was hatched from an egg. From that iron, all others have been created.

    OH MY GOD! Your not goint to start hacking kittens now are you!?

    PS, thats a realy nice soldering iron controler, I have the same thing basicaly, looks exactly the same appart from the lable, the Quick 936A, both of coarse are knockoffs of the Hako 936A. either way, this makes spares and tips cheap and easily available. I’ve left mine on overnight without burning out a tip…

  12. Greycode says:

    Sad thing is this, this would be a best seller if it did exist and I know I would have 5 of them.

  13. Greycode says:

    Blue smoke that is.

  14. Aaron says:

    April Fools? More like April FAILs amirite?

  15. ac says:

    Is it me or the cat shit completely fucked up the joke and is in no way deceptive as per April’s Fool Rule #376:

    “Thou shalt not make it evident it is a joke.”

  16. Necromant says:

    MAD SKILLZ!!!

  17. Kitt says:

    geeez *(rolls eyes)*

    is there nothing more lame than
    suburban white boys trying to sound “ghetto” ?

    #1 – Lolcats – Funny 5-10 years ago.

    #2 – DON’T waste your money on Hakko 936 knock-offs – The real thing is WORTH it! If you want new, buy one from a place like all-spec that has specials regularly. Otherwise, buy one secondhand on eBay. The knockoffs have horrible irons, the handles get so hot at higher temps that you can’t touch them. Hakko models use the same tips, so if you’re a cheapass, get a hakko 936 and buy cheap tips!!! I prefer the nice tips because they last waaaay longer if you take care of them.

  19. Kyle says:

    WHAT THE HELL –

    I just checked sparkfun’s website, they are asking MORE for a crappy Aouye 936 knock-off than all-spec sells a BRAND NEW HAKKO FOR!!!

    Wow, sparkfun. F you. Those stations are worth $35 max. WTF?????

  20. Kyle says:

    STAY AWAY FROM SPARKFUN!!! HOLY FREAKING RIP-OFF!!! OH MY GOD. How have I not noticed this before!?!?!?!??!?!?!

  21. qwerty says:

    That one well deserves the LOLKIT tag!:)

  22. JohnBailey says:

    @Hirudinea

    What do you think CAT5 is made of…

  23. G says:

    @Kyle

    It is of course an April Fools Day joke.

  24. Erik Johnson says:

    @Thopter I like that the link to the product they recommend to help build it is itself.

  25. Danj says:

    ahah cat5 .. rofflecopter

  26. Akoi Meexx says:

    I knew before even checking my rss feeds that most content today was going to be April Fools related, so I expected very little in the way of substance, and boy did I get it. =P

    At least the comments have been really fun to read today.

  27. CalcProgrammer1 says:

    I have the SparkFun 936B iron and it works fine, I’ve run it at full temperature for hours and the handle does not get hot at all. The real model number is Atten 936B (that’s what the boards inside are labeled as). I got mine for free on Free Day and it is a very good iron for the price (even at $40) when compared against cheap RadioShack irons that I had been using.

  28. Sodor says:

    hahaha?

  29. Kyle says:

    @G

    I’m not talking about the April Fools joke – I went to sparkfun’s website and saw the *real* price on a hakko knockoff soldering station – Sparkfun is asking more than the real thing costs!!! I knew their prices were very high for a lot of stuff that they sell, but damn!!!

  30. Dino says:

    YAY KITTEHS!!!

  31. I would like to know where can I get an Hakko 936 for 30$, really, show me that and I buy 2, even in ebay they are like 70-80$ and want like 60$ to ship to Europe, really…

  32. M4CGYV3R says:

    I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Rotary Encoder Breakout and the Audio Frequency Multiplexer were very real.

    Much LOL @ the Magic Smoke Injector Kit

  33. andrew says:

    ROBOKITTEH NEEDZ HIS NOMS AND HIS NOMS ARE BATTERYS LOL

  35. Kyle says:

    @hekilledmywire

    I have purchased two on eBay in the last year for under $35 each. One came with an iron, one didn’t. No big deal, irons are cheap. The fact of the matter is that sparkfun is asking $79.95 for a crappy knock off of this very model, when you can get the real thing online for $69.99 + S/H!!! That is hilarious. I guess they must get a lot of suckers for them to keep the price that high. It’s a shame if you ask me.

  36. rostit says:

    pudding!

  37. UltimateJim says:

    Lol this isn’t an april fools joke, just a simple attempt at trolling.

  38. Haku says:

    Aren’t April fools jokes supposed to be intelligently thought out so that you’re left scratching your head wondering if the joke is actually real?

    This is plain shit.

  39. San Diego says:

    I wish it worked. I could really use some.
