NO, you need a complete electric circuit for it to work. If you are working on fine circuit boards that only require a small amount of solder get a pencil tip soldering iron.

can i use this gun for stained glass?

Answers

I don't have personal experience with using it this way, but I know people have used this Weller gun for stained glass work. The ability to put the heat exactly where you need it likely works well, maybe only limited by how massive a joint you are soldering.

100-Watt/140-Watt Soldering Gun Kit This is a great soldering Gun. It is only 2 to 3 seconds for it to heat up to solder melting temperatures. It is typical or lighter weight than other soldering guns. The grip is confortable and east to use even for a small woman like me. It comes with three different blades. It has the typical soldering blade. It has the smothing blade that can be used on PVC. And it has the cut blade which is excellent for cutting rope. The blades are removed by an allen key that it comes with. It has a bright led light that illuminates the work area well. I also like that it is red since tools that can get hot should be red to catch people’s attention(warning color). I am very happy with it and use it tons. Right now I am using it to rewire my snowmobile and snowmobile trailer lights. In the spring I will use for the sprinkler system. It is always best to solder wires that are exposed to a harsh environment. Finally, it has a nice storage case that stores all the accessories. This is a great product.

The Weller 100-watt/140-Watt soldering gun kit with the 9400 gun is a nice package including a case, several specially tips, an allen wrench for changing tips and even some solder. In addition to the soldering tip, two tips for smoothing/seaming plastic are included. I find it interesting the use information is it picture form while safety information is in multilingual text. This gun is much lighter than my old Weller 8200-N gun.

Wow this soldering gun heats up very fast plus it has three lights instead of one like my old soldering gun had. I put this to use on my SUV rear window defogger wire tab that came off the glass and if you need to do this repair you need to use silver solder and not a lot of heat because you could break the glass. The repair was easy and the gun worked great. There are a total of three different tips and a small amount of solder that comes with the kit to get you going.

I was looking for an upgrade from my standard soldering iron to provide a bit more control and flexibility, and this product delivered that. Rather than waiting for a few minutes for an iron to heat up and then having it stay hot all the time (which can leads to accidental burns), this gun only heats up when you pull the trigger. It really makes soldering a lot less stressful. Plus, it has two settings: high, which is a half pull, and medium, which is a full pull. At first I thought that was a little odd - why not have pulling all the way kick it into high? Well, after using it, I know why it works this way. High is so hot that it's hard to get things set up right, so when you're really concentrating and can't focus on holding the trigger halfway in, you'll pull it all the way and be at medium heat, which is hot enough to continue working once you've melted the solder. Another advantage is safety - you really have to want "high" to get it, an absent-minded pull will get you medium heat. A few things I noticed while using this (in a hobby setting, not a serious home improvement situation) were as follows: (1) the cord is just about long enough, but it's very stiff, which means it doesn't provide quite as much freedom of movement as you might want. (2) while a sample of solder is included and works pretty well, it's a very small amount, so expect to need more after just a few projects. (3) the product comes with a wire soldering tip pre-installed, but comes with two alternative tips: one for smoothing and one for cutting. I did not test those. In the end, this product didn't actually make me much better at soldering (I'm no expert) - I think you do give up a bit of precision going from an iron to a gun, but you gain a huge amount of power, as this heats up instantly (and can be controlled via the trigger). So it's a trade-off, but I'm happy with it because I know I'm getting max heat within seconds. By the way, when I first turned this on, I noticed a strange phenomenon: the tip seemed to be melting before my eyes, almost like it was made of solder. It didn't in fact melt, but it did change color and became rough, which I assume was the metal breaking in. It wasn't something I'd ever seen before, as I've only used soldering irons - maybe all removable tips do this.

This gun is bigger than I expected, much bigger than my old Craftsman 75 for which I can't find workable tips. The advantage of a solder gun over an iron is that it heats up in just seconds when you pull the trigger. It also has three bright LEDs for illumination. A gun like this is for larger jobs, where you might be soldering to something that is just too big a heat sink for a smaller iron to heat up. I build guitars, and with this gun I can solder ground wires onto fairly large pieces that the iron couldn't touch. On the other hand, this much power is unusable one electronics, and the tip is much too big for that. Not suitable for plumbing - get a propane torch for that. Comes with a soldering tip and two cutting tips, and a bit of solder. There is no switch for the power level - that depends on the tip you install. The allen wrench for the tips stores neatly in the handle - a nice touch. As with all tools, this one comes in a form-fitting case that is useful for the manufacturer to ship it in, and useless to the owner to keep it in, because once you uncoil the cord, it is never going to go back in. I've never had an iron with a dedicated cutting tip, so I installed one and had some fun cutting the stupid liner out of the case. Now everything fits! This gun and parts are going into the big toolbox that holds all my soldering stuff, but for a change, this case is not going in the trash, it actually looks useful now that it is gutted. ( Why don't the manufacturers simply use disposable styrofoam or cardboard liners that the buyer can remove and discard to turn the shipping case into a useful storage case? Form-fitted tool cases are really idiotic. )

I've been using Weller soldering appliances for years. I didn't think there was much else you can really improve on them outside of adding LED lights (which this gun has). Weller implemented other enhancements such as the quick heat-up time and the power cord pivot which helps keep the cord out of the way. The Weller 9600 comes in a really nice case that neatly stores the gun and some accessories. The gun is perfect for hobby type projects where controlled heat fussing is required. I did use the 9600 to solder leads on an LED strip, although the gun and tip is too big for this task, I was able to successfully accomplish the job. The gun is comfortable to hold and has a good weight balance to it. The LED lights do a great job lighting up the work area. Temp control is easy, but opposite of what I am accustomed to. I am accustomed to the first trigger position is low and full squeeze on the trigger is the highest output. The Weller 9600 works with highest output is first position. I'm fine with that, it was just a control adjustment on my part.

My prior Weller soldering gun was purchased in 1958 and served well for decades. The Weller 9400 PKS has similar weight and balance with significant improvements: • Dual heat 100/140 watts controlled by a two stage trigger switch • Brighter illumination provided by three LEDs • Interchangeable pre-tinned tips • 6 foot long power cord • 7 year warranty . The advantage of a soldering gun is quick heating and cooling. Recommended duty cycle: 1 minute on/4 minutes off. The100/140 watt heat range is a good choice for medium/heavy duty applications. It’s not designed for use on heat-sensitive electronic circuit boards; use instead a 20/40 watt soldering iron. The two stage trigger switch delivers maximum heat when partly pulled and reduced heat when fully pulled. That design seems counterintuitive, but is no problem in practice. The housing and handle are a combination of red and black plastics; the black part is slip-resistant. The kit includes tin-coated tips for soldering, smoothing, and cutting. The tips can be interchanged using a hex wrench that stores in a slot on the handle. All components fit in a molded plastic storage case secured by metal latches. Weller soldering guns have an excellent durability track record. The 7 year warranty is exceptional. Suggestion: Scan the purchase receipt and save the electronic image as a backup in case the paper original is misplaced or fades. Made in Mexico.

I picked this model 9400 Weller soldering gun kit to replace my 50-plus year old WEN soldering gun as I could no longer get replacement tips for that old gun. This product comes in a tough plastic carrying case with metal closure hardware. The power cord is rather stiff and approximately 70 inches long. The case does not accommodate the cord easily once the cord is undone, so I leave it hang out of the case and wind it externally to the case. This kit includes a standard soldering tip, cutting tip, smoothing tip, tip wrench and a small roll of lead-free solder. I noticed right away that this gun has an impact-resistant housing. My old gun had a brittle bakelite housing that had broken from a drop, that not an issue with this modern product. This gun weighs a fairly light 1-pound, 13-1/2 ounces. It has a comfortable-to-use handle and two-position trigger that provides the selection of 100- and 140-watt heating capacities. It heats up quickly as claimed. Pressing the trigger activates three relatively bright LED lamps located below and on both sides of the tip providing good illumination of the work area. I tried this product for tinning stranded wire, for solder-splicing of wires and for soldering sections of brass HO scale model train track rails together. I also used it to cut polyester rope. It worked well in all of these applications. This product carries a 7-year warranty. This is a high quality product from my perspective.

This latest incarnation of the Weller soldering gun is a good one (the series has decades of good service). Dual power choices, a selection of three tips, three LED work lights, well made and a sturdy storage case. The gun is comfortable to hold and can be used all day long in accordance with the duty cycle restrictions. The three LED lights are powerful and bright and eliminate shadows in the work area. The two position trigger controls the output Wattage (140 W / 100 W). The power cord is a generous six feet in length. The hex key needed for changing soldering tips is unobtrusively located in the handle. Useful graphic instructions are included with the kit. In use – see video – the gun heats up fast enough to a maximum of 900 degrees Fahrenheit and the LEDs illuminate the work area when the trigger is pulled. The design of the gun means it can be put down without needing a special stand to keep the hot tip from burning anything.
