I needed a fine tipped iron to attach two wires to a circuit board I was "modifying" and my usual "wedge" tipped iron was too big. The fine point tip on this iron is really good, and the iron reaches temp very quickly so it was just the job. There are cheaper irons "out there" but sometimes "cheap is cheap", this iron is highly recommended. And the mod to the circuit worked a treat!

Worked very well. Heated up quickly and the 2 interchangeable heads mean it's great for a large number of different jobs. The little stand that comes with it, although a simple idea, made everything so much easier.

Well priced, heats up quickly, useful to have a spare bit.

I had just bought myself more expensive 20watt soldering iron with all the kit. Unfortunately it wasn't up to the job as the heat dissipated into the copper too quickly.
Needing to get the job done, so I popped into my local Homebase and grabbed this one at a very good price.
I was skeptical how well it would preform, but it heated up quickly and worked flawlessly.
I would definitely recommend it.

I recommend the first-rate Homebase Soldering Iron when undertaking fine electrical and electronic wiring tasks. The pointed pencil bit allows easy access to small contacts. Whilst the chisel bit is great for soldering seams.
I am not too pleased with the rather stiff power cord as this can hinder precision soldering work.

Wanted a cheap soldering iron to do a quick repair job on some Christmas lights and rushed in to get this - did the job admirably! Really pleased and has stand and alternative nib. Great job!!
