Good micro-iron poor general purpose

By KC

from South Central

About Me Professional

Pros

  • Small Pitch Surface Mount

Cons

  • Mediocre Build Quality
  • Poor heat control

Best Uses

  • 10mil Pitch 0603 0402
  • 20mil Pitch 0603 0402
  • Qfplcc Ics 0603 0402

Comments about RadioShack® Electronic and Hobby Soldering Kit:

Don't buy this for a general purpose soldering iron as it is too small and there are many better choices.

DO buy this if A)you already know what you're doing and B)you need a good tip for precision work (doncha just love 10mil pitch leadless chip carriers?).

The conical tip has a needle point and is thick at the base (doesn't lose heat). I use it with a variac to reduce tip temperature to around 650.

Expensive Weller micro-pencil irons repeatedly disappear from my bench. A few of these stay hidden in the locked drawer...

Don't leave unattended

Pros

  • Powerful generator

Cons

  • Poor heat control
  • Poor quality

Best Uses

    Comments about RadioShack® Electronic and Hobby Soldering Kit:

    Nice accessories, especially the x-acto blade. Would be better if you can replace the blade. It is a small, light-weight iron and very handy in tight positions. Do not leave this on for too long, it will burn out. The on/off switch is in a bad spot. It would be better to not even have the switch than to put it in it's location. IDK if mine was defective, but it left it on for a couple of hours, and it never worked again. I loved it when it worked.

          I have only had one occasion to use the soldering iron since I bought it. That one time it worked great. I'm glad because now I'm thinking of lots of other hobby projects that I would like to try. I plan on getting a lot of use from it.

          Really needs heat control

          By Just Saying No

          from NC

          About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

          Pros

          • Cheap Intro Price

          Cons

          • Poor heat control

          Best Uses

          • Learning How To Use Iron
          • Minor Projects

          Comments about RadioShack® Electronic and Hobby Soldering Kit:

          The heat goes up to 860 degrees. The brass tips that come with the kit are only rated up to 750 degrees. What does this mean exactly? It means your brass tips that come in the kit will distort from the heat, since there is no way to keep the heat at 750 unless you stop using it after so many minutes.

          So this soldering iron itself should only go up to 750, the brass tips should be some other higher temp metal, or this needs heat control. I will buy a heat control unit next time.

              Horrible Soldering Kit

              • It's Small

              Cons

              • Can't Change Tips
              • Falls Apart
              • Lasts Only 2 Months

              Best Uses

                Comments about RadioShack® Electronic and Hobby Soldering Kit:

                I use this soldering kit to repair electronic equipment at work, and I've gone through 2 of these in the last 5 months. I'm going after work to bring my current one back and get a new one. It only lasts as long as the tip it came with is in good condition. It breaks as soon as you try to change the tips, even though it's got the "capability" of exchanging tips. Don't buy this junk!

                Comments about RadioShack® Electronic and Hobby Soldering Kit:

                I used this little iron a lot for about 4 months. The smaller size is a real plus for increased access and easier storage in a tool box. This iron gets very hot very quickly. I never seemed be short heat on most wiring and circuit components. The included tips cover a good range of needs but these tips do not last very long, ESPECIALLY if you clean your tip with a moist sponge. The ON/OFF switch is a good feature, especially because this iron will get particularly hot if left idle for even short periods of time. The plastic handle does a marginal job of heat insulation, and will get uncomfortably hot during continuous use. Because this iron is so light, it doesn't like to stay put without the cord pulling it some other way, even in a stand. Anyway, while unplugged and completely cool, this iron slid off the table (being tugged this directon by none other than its cord) and fall on the floor. After this happened, this iron was completely dead.
