Where can i find used solder/desolder stations?

Hi, i'm looking for links where i can buy used (and in a good state) solder/desolder stations: do you know one? I'm interested in jbc models, but their price (for new models) is very high... Can you help me? thanks

eBay? Craiglist? Kijiji?

I can't imagine anyone letting a working soldering station out of their grasp.

Older STSS Metcal power units are often available on eBay quite cheaply. They can use the latest MX-500 and MX-5000 handpieces and cartridges.

Howard Electronics has name brand systems and accessories for pretty reasonable prices. They do carry JBC but also have Xytronic. I've been pretty happy with Xytronic stuff (have both their hot air and combined iron/suction stations) but, as always, YMMV.

Circuit Specialists has some "house branded" stations that are probably made in the same factory:
