This soldering iron's quality is worth more than the $15 I paid for it. Well balanced, lightweight and heats up very quickly. Replacing the tip is fast , easy and the tip remains firmly in place. This 40 watts soldering iron is a must have. I highly recommend it.
I used to burn up pots and hardware store irons. This iron is fast. I can do pickup covers and ground the back of pots simply now. Just remember to clean the tips , tin the tips for every connection and unplug between tasks. I will defiantly purchase another when this one bites it.
It's a great soldering iron for any electronics project, guitar or otherwise. I own 5 other various types and was debating why I needed another iron. I finally added it to another purchase & it's the only iron I use. Note: I do prefer the optional Flat tip over the needle tip. I repaired my Hartke amp circuit board & rewired my Les Paul. Great Iron, get the extra flat tip too!
That Solomon SR-965 soldering iron worked out great. I like the fact that it's 40 watts rather that 30 watts. I was able to get my job done quick. Thanks again. Joe Garcia
I have been building my own guitar and speaker cables. I needed a basic, no frills soldering iron. This is exactly what I was after.
I bought the soldering iron and holder about 6 months ago. I've done soldering for years and this unit is by for the best one I have used to date. Id highly recommend getting it with its stand holder
While not expensive, this iron works much better than the cheap one I used for years. Tin the tip and it will last for hours and hours of soldering.
The best yet. This is hands down the single best soldering iron I have found. I am still on the first tip after 2 guitar wiring jobs. Make sure to get solder here!
This iron was such a great buy! It warms up very quickly at just the right temperature for my guitar wiring jobs!
Better quality than the local big box hardware store for only a few pennies more. Solidly constructed and thoughtfully padded in the right places. The cord is just long enough. Reaches temp quickly. I picked up a chisel tip to increase surface area for soldering on on the backs/sides of potentiometers. It was a good move and I suggest it. The pointy tip is fine for general wiring and soldering to lugs, etc. The chisel tip just made fixing braid to the back of pots faster (less time under the heat) and now I have a tip I can modify with a slot to heat up frets. I'll probably buy another of these soldering irons for just that purpose.
