Quote from: jwl940 on Tuesday,July 02, 2013, 12:09:49 I';ve spent all morning with my head in a cloud of solder flux building a Morse Code keyer; any other hams here? It';s not so much the choice of soldering iron that';s my problem but 58 year old eyesight! Getting old is a PITA. My 40W iron has to be 30+ years old, it';s big and hot enough to get in quick and get out, and small enough to get everywhere it needs to. If the soldering iron fairy was to bring me a decent soldering station I';d snatch his hand off but until then this old workhorse of mine will have to do.My gas iron is another story. While replacing a motor on my Hubsan I saw another motor arm twist and droop through 90degrees; those exhaust gasses are hot!
Quote from: Gav on Tuesday,July 02, 2013, 08:16:50 Metcals are excellent proffesional soldering iron';s. Nice one Pete.Last xmas I was given Maplins 60W iron (part A55KJ) and nib selection pack. Think they were on offer at £45 at the time. Now £59. Not in the same league as Metcal but I';ve used it a helluva lot from fine pcb work to 5mm bullet connectors and think it';s a great hobbyist iron.
