Soldering Iron

    Hi all,

    Where is the best place to get a soldering iron & solder from ?

    I seen them last year in woolies for a tenner, just wondered if there are any decently priced one's about ?

    I was looking on there before, but havent a clue about soldering irons ??

    Which one would be decent enough to solder some intricate components ? Do you get solder with it ?


    Solder Iron - £7.99

    Would imagine you can pick these up from any DIY store. Also you may need a few accesories (stand, mat, solder etc) . Could be worh going for a kit.

    Have a read of this - from what I read use a lower wattage for more fiddly work (15-25 watts). The one I posted above is probably for bigger joints.
