good for hobby use – Electronics DIY Gas Soldering Iron Reviews

posted by houthakker1985 on 05/25/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
does its job. Decent build quality and a spare burner tip is included.
Cons:
Gas stream is not very constant. It seems to fluctuate when using the iron for a longer time. Also the only soldering tip included is rather large, so it's not a very good soldering iron for small electric components.
Other:
This needs more spare soldering tips to make it more useful. The gas stream could be a bit more constant.
Bottomline:
A good soldering iron if you have to do some soldering where there is no electricity, but I wouldn't recommend it for daily use.
