Cold heat soldering
« on: May 09, 2009, 17:08:22 PM »
Does anyone heard or used this type of soldering irons? I'm thinking of buying one and i'd like to know if its practical or even better that the usuall stuff.
I've found one here and the price seems ok so any feedback would be great.

It's a weller. I do not think that it will be useless. When you try it send feedback for us to know :D

pfff yeah. I have try it.

It's good for wires, connectors and things like that. No chance for small parts on PCBs.

Also, it has high temperature, not suitable for ics.

But, it is portable and for someone like a CNC technician ( :) ) would be a great tool.

Hmm, fair enough and the portability is a plus but i think a soldering station would be more versalite considering it's for home use.







You got a point but my colleague has one for the job and we never had a problem find a plug in a factory.  ;D ;D

I have one of these and I just recently got it out and blew the dust off it.  I use it mostly for de-soldier work.

Well it is useful at De-soldier work and the split tip is small I will take some close up pic's of it for you all.  In short I find it to be useful for quick tack's and De-soldier but then again I just taught my self how to soldier last week end LoL
