Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andika2000 Great purchase
Very easy to use tool and I am very happy with it! I purchased it originally to fix the 2 damaged solar lights which the tree trimmers broke to solder the thin wires back. Than my male gardening helper severed the cord on my favorite Black & Decker Navigator saw which I had now for 3 years and such never happened to me a female who had to learn to use power tools as a widow. There is no option anywhere to buy that saw, it has to be ordered online. I checked Youtube and learned how to solder severed electrical cords, so I did it and the saw could be used again!

I'd give it no stars if that was an option. Read all the negative reviews and take them to heart. I needed a soldering gun for a quick job of soldering a couple of wires. The tip heated up enough for tinning the tip but nothing happened when I attempted to solder the wires.

Piece. Of. Junk. It doesn't get hot enough to do anything. I cans even weld wires. Don't buy Weller unless you like throwing money away.

The Soldering Gun was a little big for what I need, but it will fulfill bigger jobs. I have no issue at all, don't need to have a stand to stand the Soldering Gun up right.... great design.

I got this because it was the highest wattage soldering tool on the Home Depot shelf but had the same experience as many other reviewers. Takes a long time to get up to any kind of temperature then only stays hot enough to actually melt solder for a few seconds. I can't fathom why HD still sells this thing with such consistently bad feedback, which I see is reflected elsewhere on the web. Another reviewer here said to spend more and get a better one, I got a much better Chicago Electric soldering gun with a light for $5 less.

Simply put- this is junk! Look for another brand. Problems from the get go. The 'tool' is designed for one minute on, four minutes off. That's roughly twelve minutes of use per hour.

I have had this gun for several years, That isn't saying it is a good product. I have used this once or twice a year to solder speaker wiring and similar types of products. After every project, I cuss, swear, and vow I am going to pitch it and buy a different one, but never have because "Hey! Project complete! No need to get rid of it. I will just buy a new one before I need to use it again...." Don't get suckered into that mentality. This doesn't get hot enough to melt even the lowest melting point and smallest of diameter of solder without struggling. I always manage to get the job done, but what should be a 5 minute job usually ends up taking 45 minutes to an hour (changing tips, soldering, testing connection, pulling connection apart, re-soldering, repeat). Seriously. Buy a different model. My wife threw this one away for me after tonight's project. Bless her!!

Bought this for a few small projects around the house. For me it will be a rarely used tool but will be thankful I have it. The price wasn't bad which made it easier to pick this model. I've used it a few times and I'm very happy with it. It heats up very quickly and is easy to use.
