Electric Iron Soldering Kit

IronThis is much better… I’ve just received a complete “electric Iron Soldering Kit”. Here are links..  US: https://ebay.to/2Hs5tO2   UK: https://ebay.to/2ERnmQY

As some of you know, I am waiting to move into our new accommodation and meanwhile much of my tech kit is in cold storage – very frustrating. I have the loan (from my very kind friend Jonathan) of a soldering iron but no de-solderer and the iron is heavy, great for some prototyping, not so good for surface mount.

So I was very excited this morning to receive this kit which not only contains a nice thin, temperature controlled, mains powered 60w iron with base, sponge and a de-soldering gun but also spare tips of varying sizes, two sets of tweezers and a set of mini screwdrivers and various soldering aids. I could not have asked for more.


Included in the kit is solder and a pad for the included base, indeed, all in all, very comprehensive as seen in the photo above.All of this in a rugged case. I’m familiar with this design of temperature-controlled iron so I have no doubt it will work a treat. Very exciting.

Between that and my new chair, life is good. I hope you find the links above useful. I’ve done a short YouTube video to go with this but apologies in advance as the microphone that comes with my bluetooth Logitech headset is not all it might be.

Here’s a link to the short video I did on this…  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2Ay-zwV96k

  1. Soldering is just fine. I’m not doing any really small SMT stuff right now, just general component soldering, however, it seems good up to now,

    1. I’m looking for a replacement for my old 60W that is… well, not good enough. 😉 Mostly I’m using it for parts with “size” like gpio pins and similar.
