I called hd.com customer service at the number Giorgio provided and was told that, no, Home Depot does NOT carry the replacement tips for this soldering gun. I contacted "Customer Care" at Home Depot and was told again that Home Depot does not carry the replacement tips either online or in the stores. I suggested they support the products they sell, and asked how we can get this suggestion to someone in the corporate offices, and was asked to wait while they contacted the manufacturer to see what the availability of replacement tips was. When they came back on the line, they said they were unable to contact the manufacturer as it was after 5pm, but they could forward the suggestion to start carrying replacement tips for this soldering gun in the future.
I was able to locate replacement tips online at Radioshack.com in a two pack for $2.99 They can be found by searching for "RadioShack Replacement Tip for Cat. #6402190" and are themselves Catalog #: 6400237 and shipping is FREE. Read Less

Answer: 
No. This is not used for plumbing purposes. To solder plumbing you would use a torch, and even then it should be hotter then propane, such as a MAPP torch. If you're not experienced with soldering plumbing joints you'd be well advised to call a professional and have them do the job, or consider using a compression fitting to repair it.

Answer: 
No, you can solder copper pipe, but you will at least need a propane torch to do it with. This won't get the pipe hot enough to melt the solder. The pipe has to be that hot for it to work correctly. Been doing it for years now.

Answer: 
Hi Stefa,
A soldiering iron does not melt metal, it melts solider. The solider fills the gap or hole. With this in mind you may be able to use solider to stop the leak. It works best on copper pipe.

Answer: 
Home Depot sells Landscape wire . I use 16 gauge for my application.Check with a Home depot salesperson for the proper gauge for your application.It depends on the length of your run and how many watts you will be feeding on each run.

Any UL approved extension cord will do fine. A regular lamp cord type extension cord will work without any concern at all.

If you pull the trigger all the way back, is it at the 100 or 140 watt level?

I believe that the first step of the trigger is 140 watt and all the way back is 100 watt. Seems backward to me.

Answer: 
TechTechr, the first stage of the trigger runs the iron at 140 watts, the second stage (trigger depressed all the way) runs the iron at 100 watts. This help keep the iron from over heating when the trigger is help all the way down for an extended period of time.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Meh Its a soldering gun, nothing fancy, nothing great it works. BUT if you need new tips Home Depot as usual is worthless. Have to find a real hardware store tomorrow to get replacement tips. August 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Needed the Watts Gets up to temp. fast to get larger jobs done faster August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed Had a cheap pointed iron and was taking forever to solder a bunch of wire connectors, relays, etc for kid's power wheels upgrade. Bit the bullet and grabbed this soldering gun. Allows me to solder 10 connections in same time as I could do one before. This gun allows you to heat the elements you're connecting and then add the solder to those elements creating a much better connection--instead of just melting a blob of solder on top of connected items. High quality. Better results. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Soldering Iron I had a compact soldering iron but it just couldn't stand up to constant use and finally failed. I shopped around and found this unit. As a bonus it comes in a study storage case, something I always appreciate. For the tool itself it heats up almost instantly so no need to have it heating all the time. It also cools rather quickly. I have had no issues with it other than the first tip didn't last very long but perhaps I didn't do something correctly or I need the medium I see on the internet to clean the tip. Replacements are available, I now have a couple, but they are somewhat pricey. Overall I am very happy with the tool. May 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Can't beat a fast gun Great Soldering Gun. It heats up instantly ,and does the job. I Soldered my landscape lights, because the crimp connections dont hold up at all , its only a matter of time and they fail.The fast heat-up time made soldering wire splices for my Landscape lighting a snap. June 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Soldering gun vs soldering iron Good for small, quick jobs (like wires). The tips are too small to "store up" a lot of heat for big things (like sheet metal). The instructions say to use the gun for no more than 1 minute at a time, then you must let it cool for 4 minutes (must be a transformer inside that would overheat). For larger jobs you should get a conventional iron with a large tip (1/4" or bigger) that can stay hot. For my project, a 50W continuous duty soldering iron did better than the 140W gun. An odd thing about this gun is the 2-stage heat: pull the trigger half way and you get 140W; pull it to the next step for the 100W. I would've thought it the other way-- pull the trigger a little for a little heat (100W), and then pull it more for more heat (140W). May 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Soldering Gun The unit was very easy and dependable to work with my small project. May 31, 2016
