Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
Nice soldering iron for jobs where your low-power soldering station cannot deliver enough heat (power connectors, etc.).
Temperature regulated (however it's hard to believe the scale values).
Not a regular ground terminal - you have to connect the crocodile style terminal to the ground port. Why the manufacturer not using a standard 3-wire cable? Probably the price considerations...
The tip is mounted using side screw - I would prefer the cup-nut type locking (this tip mount type on exactly the same soldering iron sold in some eBay shops)
It can also be $2-$3 cheaper.
Would be nice to have spare tips for sale on DX. I know where to buy them (another HK shop), but think DX has to take care of the spare parts as well.
Not bad and probably the only 60W type sold by DX.
