  • Good collection of soldering tools

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    A wide assortment of soldering tools for specific tasks

    Cons:

    Handles are cheap and uncomfortable

    OtherThoughts:

    Each of the 6 implements serve a specific purpose. Each one has the same tool with a different angle or width. The hook has two different sized hooks for pulling on through hole components when desoldering. The chisel has a flat end and an angled end, great for cutting traces on vero board or prying on components. The pick is great for removing solder from shorted leads.

    One thing I noticed is that the back of the package attempts to explain through drawings on how to use each tool and when/where it would be useful. I'd recommend this to anyone looking at easier or beginner soldering tasks.

    The one gripe I have is the plastic blue handle in the center, really cheap plastic that hurts after a while, it's hexagon shaped and runs the length of the tool.

    I'd pay more if the handles had a soft rubber coating or something similar.

    Bottomline:

    Overall, great tools for beginners and experts alike, already used two of them in tight spaces on the first day I got them and it saved me time. I didn't have to use my fat fingers to try to pull on those pesky tiny resistors.

    Great for precision work.
