The lidl one all day long, decent bargain that one, the duratool is about right in price - will do for the basics but like I say, for comparison it's the lidl one

​the lidl one will be in store.
duratool is CPC/farnell own brand, I personally don't think there's anything wrong with it.
I've a lot of their stuff and it's a good price and available 12 months a year.
the lidl stuff is available as one off special offers usually good value for money, with a 3 yr guarantee, there website has a section where you can download instruction manuals for virtually every electrical item they have ever sold.

Thank you

I also buy a lot from cpc, usually quite good, haven't had any problems, haven't bought a soldering iron before, so don't know much

will pop into lidl during the week and have a look

still will keep the cpc one to try out

That's the URL for the Lidl one. It's no longer on their website but plenty available in stores as of yesterday when I dropped in.

P:)

I guess these are Chinese? Anyone like me could get away with one of these cheapo ones.

I paid around £16 for my Antex XS 25 over 3 years ago, hardly use it really, however, I try to buy British Company made products where I can regardless of the cost.

Pretty sexist, as the media have told us - women are great at multi-tasking. In this case she is able to solder and cope with the searing pain of holding a 350C soldering iron with her bare hands. How many of you guys could do that? oO

In all seriousness, are these usable? Been looking to get around to fixing some a few controllers that need some soldering/desoldering.

Perhaps a now defunct soldering iron repurposed as a multimeter tip?

You get a basic iron with crud gear.... the solder sucker would not be approved in a work place, the solder again........ The iron is just tosh.... I've lived with a solder iron and top tech in my hands for many years serving the world, MOD, F1, all tech req industries - for duratool = zero, the lidl - bargain basement, buy and sell on... simple as
