I have purchased 2 of these solder guns and both broke within the first hour of using them. They do not heat up properly and the tip breaks. It is very inefficient and I do not recommend it at all, for any sort of job.
Thanks for the review, and we are sorry about the bad product experience. These are Weller products, and general of very good quality. MCM and Weller also cover these units with a generous warranty--please be sure to contact our customer support team to have the units replaced or credited if needed.
Anytime I can get something that I need for half price I call that a good deal!!!!
I picked this up so that my husband could finish a 'do it yourself' project. He found it to be so well made, balanced and easy to use that he now uses in at his 'hobby car restoration' shop as well as at home. If this guy touches his classic cars it MUST be A+ great!
