need help with soldering iron.
« Reply #10 on: July 01, 2004, 12:11:52 AM »

I don't recomend gun soldering irons, they are heavy and it's difficult to handle them.
I like pencil soldering irons.

I got my Antex here for 40US$ with two tips, a 1mm and a 4,7mm tip.
It heat's up in less than 4 minutes.
And it's grounded. ;)

Get a 25W or 30W pencil soldering iron.

I like that Antex, did you order it online, or in a retail store? Can I get it here in the US? I noticed it is a UK site.

Antex claims that my soldering iron is ready in 2 minutes. ;)

Tank, I got it from a local shop.
This is a good brand, but you can also get a JBC.

I've got this Weller.  Costs about 40 USD, but well worth it.

I like that Weller, it looks like what I need. I don't mind spending 40 dollars, a good tool is worth it. I'll check if I can order one from them, or if I need to seek a retailer.

Thank you very much everyone, your help is really appreciated, I needed it.  :)

EDIT: I just found it for $27.97 at crawfordtool.com.   wOOt

weller, wahl,  and esico-trition all make excellent soldering equipment.

i dont know that they have the best prices, but they do have a decent selection.

EDIT:  that cold soldering tool has had me intrigued for a couple of weeks now.  i'll probably order one soon.   you know how it is when you get the "itch", hehe.

modnut, that is a quickheat soldering iron, not only does it heat up in about 25 seconds, it also is 100watt and will burn through veeroboard if you try and use it for that, it is far too big and heavy for electronics. I use a RS electronics 20w soldering iron for my electonics, along with my 3 others i have acumilated over the years... I have a gun one which is useful for larger work. :D
