      To the person that said get a Weller you better price one! A new Weller will set you back 50.00 not 5.00 so keep that in mind...

      Comments about RadioShack 25-Watt Pencil:

      I use this iron with my Arduino projects and it works great. The work it has done has paid for itself several times over. The only problem is that it doesn't have any heat control whatsoever, but that's to be expected. It works perfectly for electronics so that's not really an issue for me.

          The tip loosens up after I finish using it. I have to remember to check it. Before I use it.

          Pros

          • Works Well

          Cons

          • No temperature reading
          • So-so quality

          Best Uses

          • Minor Projects
          • Small stuff

          Comments about RadioShack 25-Watt Pencil:

          I used this iron when I was first learning how to solder. It was nice because it was cheap, easy to handle, and compact enough to put away when not needed. I didn't really have too many issues with it.

          The reason I threw it out was that the screw that holds in the tip got melted to the iron. This meant that I could not replace the tip. Also, when I went to remove the screw, it got stuck halfway out, which meant that the tip wasn't always sitting properly. It still worked, and for a couple of bucks I couldn't really complain. I probably had the iron on for 3-4 hours straight while working with it the whole time before that screw got fused in there.

          As a starter's iron, this thing is great. Works well, does what you need it to. A temperature readout of some sort would be nice, but at this cost I'm not upset that it isn't there.

            Same as previous write up's. Tip replacement screw fuses to make replacement impossible.

                  The iron took too long to generate heat
                  The grip/handle was too warm
                  Users are probably better off with a Weller product
