I really wish it had a built in lighter – Electronics DIY Gas Soldering Iron Reviews

posted by IgalY on 09/30/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Almost perfect item. good grip, good temperature, good set of functionality (both torch and soldering iron).
Cons:
I wish it had 2 additional things: 1. Integrated lighter, my other propane soldering iron has it and it's great, this one needs to be lighted by some other source - thi sis annoying. 2. Glass window of some sort to see how much juice I have still left. As it is now I have to guess by the weight.
Other:
It would be nice if it had a cap-cover for the business end of it, I have it in my toolbox and I am kind of troubles the cathalyzator grid may get screwed up by other tools.
Bottomline:
A must in every toolbox. Use it in your car, your boat or your house.
