Cheap item but great value

" Works well and heats up quickly. The fine tip is good for general soldering applications. The stand is thin and a little flimsy but if you take a little care it works fine. Great value for money. "

" A very nice soldering iron considering the price the only downside is the iron rest which is a simple thin metal rest which i just binned but other than that i am very happy with the soldering iron. Heats up quickly. "

Value option that does the job
28 Nov 2014
By
, Redruth
" Being the type of person that would probably only use a soldering iron every decade or so I thought I would go for the value option on screwfix. I'm sure if you are a soldering expert this iron is average at best, but if you're a novice occasional user like myself then it's ideal! "

Tip
20 Nov 2015
By
, Wigan
" The iron itself heats up ok. As per instructions took tip out when not in use. Tinned tip as your supposed to, but the tip is totally rubbish. Really hard to get replacements as screwfix don't sell them. The tip melted away in no time like someone else said must be made of chocolate! I'm a trained solderer, but this is shocking. Unless your going to do just a one off job don't bother! "
