Purchased at Home Depot end of Feb 2021. Dead by the end of April. I used it for 3 small electronic repairs and to temporary solder an arm back on a pair of eyeglasses. It now shows "hot" with the iron at room temperature. No continuity across the NON REPLACEABLE heating element, so I assume it be very dead. Cheap feeling. The plastic case kept trying to spontaneously disassemble in the front half. I absolutely regret this purchase, and if this is the quality that Weller produces now I will absolutely never purchase another item from them. Shame too my last one was nice. It's only good quality was that it felt nice in the hand. Useful for an Iron, but not so useful for a cold pointy stick.

    Perfect. Needed this to finish a stained glass panel. Love green light feature and that you don't have to worry about where to stand it when you need both hands. I've included a photo to show how well it works. Two thumbs up on this product!

    Fast and Easy to Hold Soldering Irong
    18-Watt Soldering Iron I love this soldering Iron. Its another great Weller product. It took about 20 seconds for it to heat up which is fantastic. It is ergonomically correct design which means the grip is shaped so it sits in your hand and allows the most finger dexterity possible. It has a light that shines on the work area. I have a picture of me soldering my door bell wires. I also use it to fix other electrical devices such as the switch on my piano keyboard. It is perfect for wires and large circuitry. It is a little too big for delicate circuitry, but that isn't what it was made for. I consider this my new multipurpose soldering iron. I think it is great.

    Just the iron I needed!
    Straight up, this is a good dependable tool. Not a lot of bells and whistles just a good dependable tool. Its the perfect middle of the road size for everything I need a soldering iron to do. Sometimes I have to solder larger metal parts out in the workshop and sometimes its just some audio wiring for my PA or home stereo. This iron fits the bill for both. It comes with a small conical point which is perfect for connecting even the smallest of circuit wires. There is a optional spade point which is good for metal joining projects. The good thing about this iron is that these points just plug into the front of the iron like a speaker jack. No need for special tools to change things around. I can make repairs to a torn up circuit board or solder my wife's tin lanterns together quickly and easily. It only takes this iron 30 seconds to get to working heat. When you push the "on" switch on the top of the iron the light is red but turns to green when its ready to solder. There is a good work light on this device which lets you see the material and the solder. The iron is molded plastic in a shape which allows resting it on the workbench without any special stand. The rear of the iron has a wide flat place allowing the iron to sit there unattended without worry of scorching anything. It says "Weller" on the side which means I know it will be my soldering tool for the next 10 years or so.

    Awesome soldering iron!
    This 18W soldering iron impressed me with perfect 60W performance and great features. It is very comfortable in the hand with rubberized grips and good balance. I like the way it sits without a stand and it heated up in seconds. The LED status light on top shows red and turns green when temperature is reached. The LED working light is an excellent feature. A feature that I like is the phono jack and plug to make changing tips easy and quick. Spare tips are available as a special order purchase at Home Depot (WPS10 - .03125" conical and WPS11 - .125" chisel). It has a 9V DC switching power supply. I was able to quickly finish a wiring project that I had been putting off because my old iron is ancient and it was such a hassle to get it heated and working properly. With this Weller iron, soldering is going to be a pleasure from now on! I had no problems and this iron meets my needs for small repairs.
