Good tools for a fair price – Stainless Steel DIY Soldering Tools (6-Piece Set) Reviews

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

Pros:
These are made of pretty good quality steel and there is a tool for every purpose under heaven. Very useful.
Cons:
The handles are light blue and rather ugly. Moreover, the text "C.V. SOLDER ASSIST" is ugly and unnecessary. The brush is too flimsy to be of any use, I threw it away. You have to sharpen the tools before use.
Other:
I bought these because I bought a new multimeter and I didn't want to use its probes for scraping solder. The look of these tools can be improved by sanding the text off and putting some heatshrink on top of them. That improves the grip as well. I modified mine that way and I recommend it to everyone.
Bottomline:
Buy these and a good pair of tweezers and you have all the mechanical tools you need for soldering.
