I picked one of these up the other day, fantastic piece of kit for the price.

It's £19.99 (currently half price until the 22/02/2011), but it's £2.99 delivery which means it's £22.98 if you order online. You can always check local store stock online, then pick it up and grab one for £19.99 like I did.

Thanks for the link, I tried to put it in the main post but It still just sends me to the maplins homepage for some reason. I'll just add it in the post instead.

no probs, i could see at the end of the url the real link. but it didnt seem to direct you

I don't know if anyone can help here. I have some 70 year old small pane leaded light windows, some panes of glass are cracked and I want to replace them. The lead corners on each pane of glass are individually soldered and I wondered if this soldering torch was suitable for melting the lead solder joints to remove the strips of lead and then remove the cracked glass?

I suppose it depends how thick the lead solder is. If it's a small/medium blob of solder, the solder tip on this product could melt it on high setting. If it's a fairly large amount, you could give the 1300 C torch a go, which would probably melt it - just might leave a bit of a burnt mess.

Don't know if this is a suitable tool, but if you're going to be melting lead solder make sure you don't inhale the vapours

looking at the solder joints, they are approx. 15mm square and about 2/3mm in thickness? They are soldered both sides internally and externally, I presume I would tackle the job externally for ventilation.

I have used the solder tip on high to desolder joints about half the size of that - so I can't see the torch having a problem removing those. Good luck.

Thanks for your advice, it's a job I've been wanting to do for ages so it's time to take the plunge!
