Why the end for $199 desolder tools?

Pros

  • Good heat control

Cons

    • Large Projects

    Comments about RadioShack® 45-Watt Desoldering Iron:

    I have used the same desolder tool for 3 years replaced the tip 3 times. I use this on both circuit boards for pinball games and large wire solder connections for older EM pinball games. Never had problems unless I did not let it warn up enough or was trying to rush without using flux. It does the job if it's not working your doing it wrong.

    Comments about RadioShack® 45-Watt Desoldering Iron:

    Works great de-soldering and re-soldering circuit board components.

    Works great to de-solder chain necklaces when the solder seeps into links.

    I wish I had purchased this many years ago. It will be my go to soldering gun from here on out.

    Just remember as with all these types of soldering tools be sure to ONLY touch the handle.

      Comments about RadioShack® 45-Watt Desoldering Iron:

      Needed to replace the stepper motors for the instruments on my 2004 Yukon. It required de-soldering 24 connections on the printed circuit board to replace them all. This tool made it easy with no damage to the board.

        Tool worked perfectly. I used it to repair multiple pins on a circuit board as well as replace diodes on the same board. Worked much better then desolder braid.

                Comments about RadioShack® 45-Watt Desoldering Iron:

                This tool was left in my garage in a home that I purchased five years ago and I did not even know it was in there until I was faced with a soldering task on my 2004 Buick Lesabre's instrument cluster.

                Being a first time solderer I had to look up videos to learn how to handle the job. As it turned out this little jewel made it so much easier.

                It goes without saying "if I can do it, anyone can" using this desoldering iron!

                      Just got this home, fixing capacitors on motherboard, could not get to remove them. When I checked the temp it was only 320F, this product should get to 700F. It say so on the back of the package. Return it to store and waiting for new one. If the new one works I will post good review.
                      I see other people post that this did not work on motherboard, its because it did not get as hot as advertised.

                        I have been using these for over 25 years!
                        I have removed thousands of components with this tool. The tips do wear out, but at 2 bucks each, that's not an issue. I used to have a W31134 unit, but the tips are $10-$15 each and don't last much longer than these. Besides, I work on all sorts of electronic items and need different size tips for different size pins, so I keep the ones that wear out as the hole gets too big for small work but is just fine for larger pinned items (i.e. board mounted potentiometers). If you maintain these units (keep them clean) they can last for years. I am currently using one that is 12 years old. You just can't beat this tool!
