Disappointing! It takes between 3 and 15 clicks of the igniter to get this thing to light. I assumed that at this price it would be a good item and work as advertised, but apparently not. If you buy this expecting it to work well you will be disappointed.
Now its a month later and it takes 20 to 30 clicks to get it to light. This

This is a 4-way review, perhaps most relevant to Sous Vide Cooks: 1) Heat Gun, 2) torch, 3) Searzall, 4) Fan Nozzle

First purchase, the Porter Cable PC1500HG electric heat gun, but found it lacking for finishing meat cooked Sous Vide. At the time of purchase, I was not aware of the Fan Nozzle. However, it is a great heat gun.

Works awesome, while it lasts. Ignitor quit last week, I purchased it in July of 2017. I use it professionally, it comes out maybe once or twice a week. I Called bernzomatic, attempted cleaning it per their tech. It didn’t fix the issue, and they are refusing warranty service. They are telling me I need to deal with amazon, amazon

This thing is so useful! I bought it to keep track of all the pieces when doing a small cell phone repair, but ended up leaving it on my desk at home for all manner of small repairs, crafts, paper cutting, etc.

Now... The one I got came with 3 "parts boxes" along the top... And due to the nature of the design, the material is

I use heat guns quite often, mostly for applying heat-shrink tubing, and bending PVC tubing and pipe. For these applications, I have a couple professional heat guns by Milwaukee, with accurate digitally controlled fan speed and heat control that can be variably set and then the gun adjusts to maintain the setting. But those cost a few

I don't solder often but as I am into the R/C hobby there are times when I have to do some repair on the PCB of my R/C car or quadcopters.

I'm a software engineer, which basically means I don't know how to solder but occasionally try. I picked up my first prototype board for a project and a coworker recommended using flux.

The 0.8mm size is quite thin but useful for the small electronic projects and wire sculptures I do. The soldered joints are strong.
The solder is made of Tin (Sn) and Lead (Pb) with a rosin core flux. It is somewhat amusing that the label on the spool says " LEAD FREE

This is some of the best solder I've ever used, it's identical to kester solder in preformance.

I have a bar of sal almaniac and use it for both my electronics and stained glass irons, but this performs far superior to it.

This is not sal almaniac. Instead, it appears it could be a mix of solder and sal almaniac. Regardless of its contents, it works instantly, giving you a nicely tinned tip the moment you pull the solder

Great stuff. Very handy-- clean the tip on that brassy scrunchie thingy, dip in this, off you go. Much easier than cleaning the tip and tinning with solder. If I want more on the tip I can just roll the tip in it a bit. Of course, I'm in my 60's and the hand is a bit shaky-- so this makes tinning so

This works great. For new hands at soldering, if you find that you continuously have problems getting your solder to stick to the tip of the iron, even when you use flux, or just generally find soldering troublesome, try this. What you do is you turn on the iron, let it heat up. The tin contains a compacted powder; when you stick the

This is very useful, particularly if you are new to soldering.

Here's how it works: let's say you soldered a connection, but it's a ugly job, kind of lumpy and far too big for what you need. If you just have a soldering iron, you can still remelt the solder, but the best you can do is prod it around and hope to knock the excess

If used without additional flux added it gives of an odor unlike any flux fumes I've smelled, and unfortunately I've smelled many different fluxes in my days.

Prior to this, I'd only used the cheapo Aven desoldering wick and figured this would be an upgrade. Nope. Not even close. Had trouble getting the wick hot enough to absorb any solder, and by the time it did finally reach temp, the braid it would oxidize (I guess?) and refuse to absorb any solder even though it had yet to do so.

Works great. I suggest a do it yourself improvementioned would be to it split the case apart, it's designed to separate. Then add weight to the bottom half to make it heavier. That way it doesn't slide around so easily then reassemble.

This has become an essential tool for soldering. Just poke the tip into the wire mesh and it comes out clean. Much better than a sponge. Works very well.

Huge Hakko brand loyalty here in general.

However, this isn't at the quality level that Hakko is known and loved for... just not too well thought out.

There are only two things I don’t like about this unit that I consider inconsequential to its performance. 1) I would love a backlit display and 2) The on off switch should switch off when it’s in the down position. This unit switches on when the switch is in the down position. Probably a German thing - like driving on the wrong side

I did a review of the iron on a forum, so I figured I'd share it:

It's a Weller WE1010 70W Solder Station. It comes with the WEP70 pencil iron and uses the rather common ETA type tips.

Firstly, the unit is designed and engineering Germany. However, it was built in Mexico. I have to give Weller some credit, at least

This review applies to all cheap brands; pay attention to the description pictures, many guns looks the same with different colors. If they look the same, that tells you that it is the same mold and the same manufacturer in China making it with different brands.
