Decent price for this item including delivery plus Amazon's customer service record.

Obviously not professional-standard equipment but should be good if you just need to do the occasional bit of electronics repair work or crafts stuff and the replacement tips for this are cheap and readily available. The reviews are also pretty decent.

Good price. I love soldering. You can also use soldering irons to scorch wood and make some nice artistic creations.

Probably not this one so much, its only a 15w and is designed for delicate electronics work that needs to be done at a pretty low temperature. You can usually get cheap 30-60w irons from Wilko and Ebay that would be better for that I imagine.
Ordered to repair my broken soldering iron.

Get a prime trial and that problem will go away.
Your deal price (which is very good) should really say that the price is for Prime members only, unless ordering over £20.

No problem, I've modified the title now. It looks like Amazon themselves have sold out now as the one I bought earlier was straight from them (I'm collecting it tomorrow through Prime) but now it's being sold by tooltime.

I wouldn't buy cheap mains stuff on ebay!

I doubt it is much cop, but here's a cheapo 60W one on CPC, but would need to spend an extra £1.50 to get over the £5 minimum spend for fee delivery :- cpc.farnell.com/dur…127

If you buy a cheap soldering iron check the bit stays firmly secure when it is hot.

I bought a cheap 50w iron some years ago from Tilgear, and despite tightening the grub screw that held the tip when it was both cold then hot, the tip fell out and bounced off the item I was soldering. It fell over the side of the bench and burnt through the crutch of my trousers, just missing my vitals. It then slide down the leg, and burn out at the knee. I was lucky I just got a light burn down the inside of my right leg and several holes in a vacuum cleaner hose which was the next thing it hit, plus a ruined pair of trousers and a slightly scorched shoe.

Turned out the tip was made of iron and no matter how tight the screw was, the tip would contract enough to fall out whenever it was touched on metal.

That's just crazy. Hopefully you got at least a refund and an apology from the seller or the manufacturer. That could really have hurt someone.

(Note that I was going to say that's just nuts but I didn't want to make a crap pun. :D)
