    Fine cheap soldering iron

    posted by robindebrown on 06/23/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It is cheap and it does what is supposed to do, it heats up quite fast. The tip is very thin so it is nice for small board work. I have this soldering iron for quite a while now and I use it a few times a month, it still work good and tip looks still nice
    Cons:
    Tip became loose after a couple of times, not a real problem just screw it again. Plastic holder can become a bit hot after l...

    Cons:
    The handle is made of hard plastic, as almost all other solder irons. There is however a small gap between the two halfs, but i...
