I have a Sugon T26 soldering station.

It has an European 2 pin plug, I have a 3 pin adapter for it.

As far as I am aware there will be no ground connection using this method.

It comes with a ground connector on the station, crocodile clip style.

Where should I connect the clip? (I am situated at home.)

I have no access to a ground other than in the wall socket.

Am I better off trying to source a 3 cable wire for the power supply and fixing a standard UK plug to it?

You solder station designed to use in industry. They usually have ground separate from power ground, which is for safety. For home use you may replace power cable with 3 wire and grounding pin and connect green wire to chassy. The iron body should be grounded. That crocodile style connector for antistatic rug and bracelet.
