fine tip soldering iron
24 Jul 2012

"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."

"Purchased this soldering iron and it lasted for about 10 minutes before it packed in.

"used mine today and could barely hold the wires in place to solder due to the amount of heat coming away from the vents in the iron. eventually found my old antex and this worked perfectly and was able to finish job off"

Ok when it works
7 Feb 2014

"I've had two of these now. First one broke within a few hours so i returned it. The second one lasted 5 months and has just broke so got binned.
When it works, it heats up quickly, can cope witht he lead free solder and can do quite good detailed work if really needed. The fustrating part is when it stops working. It just doesn't heat up. I tried a different fuse, checked the plug and now it's out of warranty, took it apart to find nothing loose or serviable. I assume it is the element but seeing as it hasn't been dropeed, used in extreme cold, used to brand leather or switched repeatedly on/off i don't see why an element should just go. Seeing as you pull all your other bits out to do the job and prepare your work then after 10 min realise there is no heat, you can imagine the fustration is high. Poor product i'm afraid Screwfix!

steer clear

"Bought this soldering iron to solder some fine cables to some relays. Started well, heated up very quickly , worked fine for 20 minutes, then noticed tip was not as pointed as it was. After half an hours use the tip had become totally unusable as it had apparently melted . Not sure what the tip was made of but seems like it was chocolate. Couldnt finish the job and had to return the product for a refund . I know you get what you pay for but this was ridiculous. Save your money and buy an Antex"

Buy a better soldering iron.

"Cheap and nasty; will not get up to temperature to allow soldering for more than a few seconds. I managed to complete the job by turning off and on over a considerable length of time."
