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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Antoine Lightweight Solder Gun
While the solder gun is ideal for finer work, it was somewhat light weight for the mass of copper that I needed to solder. Choice of a heavier one would have been nice. As there was heat sensitive material around the job, a propane torch was not an option. That said, this solder gun did eventually provide a good looking, strong connection.

Doesn't seem to heat up enough to solder stuff. Brought it back and bought a 40 watt stick model and it worked.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RobertP Paperweight shaped like a soldering gun
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.
