I have big hopes of quality when it has a 3 year guarantee, and even 6 months for wear and tear.
To be honest I intended to put my soldering gun in the moho but it's buried somewhere amongst our other stored stuff, so much easier to just buy this! Though having done so realize many further uses.
I also have the same bought from Maplins, an excellent bit of kit but I bought one from Aldi years ago, it isn't as good but there is nothing wrong with it, I keep the Iroda in the van and the Aldi one in the car, for non-professional use the Aldi one is fine
I seem to have 4 gas powered soldering irons now. I bought a new one a couple of years ago because I couldn’t find the others, then just after the new one was delivered, I found the originals.
Two of them, I aquired in the late ‘80,s and both still work perfectly.
I’ve seen the Aldi ones, but can’t really justify a fifth.....
Our hab door catch stopped working today, a wire had come off the motor so I got to use my gas soldering iron for the first time. Real easy to use, fast heat up and job done in 30 seconds. So glad I bought it.
