best thing for anyone soldering small wires – 150W Temperature Controlled Soldering Pot - Blue + Golden (220V) Reviews

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

Pros:
makes tinning multiple wires a breeze. rather than taking 20 seconds or so to mount and then tin each wire, just dip the lot in one bunch and your done!
Cons:
maybe could be cheaper?
Other:
Would be even better if it had removalbe 'cups'... so you could have one for solder, one for hot glue... etc etc. temp guage would be nice too. also, it'd be good if it came with a 'skimmer' to take the resin and other impurities off the top.
Bottomline:
if you solder more than a handful of wires a month, a must buy. for me, making batteries with dozens of cells (each of which needs a balance wire) this thing saves me heaps of time!
