Voted hot, but this gas filled iron is a bit of a jack of all trades. I have several gas filled irons which are occasionally useful if there is no mains or 12 volt supply but for soldering (for instance) it apparently doesn't get hot enough for silver soldering. There is no control of temperature..
Hardly any in stock anywhere.
The very few that do have plenty though.

Yes, it does seem much more controllable than the ones I have. He also seems to use it for silver soldering jewellery. Something the reviews of Amazon say isn't possible. YMMV
The adjust only for gas flow doesn’t control heat or temperature. Gas soldering irons are good for high heat but electric soldering irons control their heat that why there better
I got this for small jobs on cars rather than hooking up my solder station, I have to say I am impressed with the speed it heats up.
How is it charged? Gas refills.

No, from a gas lighter can
The trouble with these Homebase deals is unless it is available locally then if you factor in the cost of travelling (say) £30 miles then it becomes a lot less attractive
These are great, so much easier, quicker and more convenient to use than an electric one. Easy to refill too. Think I paid £29 off amazon a while back
How does it fit to my Dremel drill?
Heat. Thanks so much, my local has 5 in stock, plus HB is only 4 mins away from car. This appealed to me since I do smaller jobs on my car, wiring and getting the solder station out is a pain and bulky. This would be a great tool to have without needed to connect to power.
Tips seen to be cheaper than most too at around a fiver. My gascat tips cost over a tenner.

Same reason I bought one, even does the heatshrink so double thumbs up from me. Fancy metal tin as well so it won't fall to bits.

I just picked mine up, normally a deal like that, it's out of stock from my local homebase but they still have 4 in stock. At £23, you can't go wrong and I like how it even heatshrinks, saves the fingers getting burned from a lighter. This is so much convenient than getting my solder station out. I love dremel tools, they are pricy but quality. I only buy when it's on sale and agree, like how it comes in a nice tin case.
