    Doing electrical every day, LOOK ELSEWHERE or prepare to buy a case full of tips. They crack after 20 cycles average.

    Okay, I don't leave many bad reviews, but once in a while a product I use all the time just really disappoints me. I deal with electrical all the time. The problem with this iron, which is an engineering problem with fast-heat irons and soft metals, in order to heat the element quickly the element must be a very low-density metal. This way, it heats up quickly, in under 20 seconds. However, the problem with this is that every time one heats and cools a metal it stresses the structure leading to cracking. Long story short after maybe 15-20 heat and cool cycles the element develops a crack and becomes completely useless I've been through maybe six elements. So, I thought if I just bought like four elements, that would be enough for a couple months. Not even close, after less than 20 heat and cool cycles (think 20 wires soldered, the element cracks and is garbage.) I use another one that is higher wattage and a different brand, that one lasted a lot longer, think months but even it... 2/5 A. MCCLAIN (Somewhere, MN) - See all my reviews, July 20, 2015

    Good product, works well.

    Totally pleasant experience! (almost) This solder gun is much nicer than I was expecting for the price. Heavy duty construction, functions exactly as described, heats up quickly, nice sturdy case, a bit of solder included.....all good things. Would have been 5 stars if not for the totally useless little light bulb that, apparently, is intended to light your work if you're soldering in the dark. I tried that. Even at night with no other lights it doesn't even light up the area at the end of the tip. What were they thinking? Be better if it wasn't even there. Woulda got 5 stars and maybe the gun would be even less expensive. Still.......It's a GOOD PRODUCT. WORKS WELL.Addendum (a month later). Have used the solder gun for a lot of little jobs, continues to please, still works well. The useless little light bulb stopped doing anything at all the second time I used the tool. Kinda disconcerting, re quality of the rest of the gun, but nothing else seems to be going... 4/5 tmexrea - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Apex Tool Group D550PK 120-volt 260/200-watt Professional Soldering Gun Kit (Tools & Home Improvement) I wanted a gun that would deliver the heat quickly. This gun has two ranges and the high range is what I was looking for. It delivers what it advertises. It holds the heat to the solders melting point. There was no overheating or burnt material. It also has two lamps by the trigger to illuminate the job in weak light. I am very satisfied with this soldering gun, it functions well and has a real nice balance when working.

    As good as it was 40 years ago & still going

    5/5 Timothy J. Ryan (Athens, OH United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Apex Tool Group D550PK 120-volt 260/200-watt Professional Soldering Gun Kit (Tools & Home Improvement) This soldering gun is a classic, and constitutes an example of a great tool that has NOT been replaced with a cheaper-to-produce but inferior product. The modern guns are as good as those I used when I was a boy 40 years ago. I recently purchased this one to (finally) replace a lower wattage pencil soldering iron I've been putting up with for years after my first Weller gun broke. This gun has all the heat I need and then some. There is nothing more frustrating than sitting and sitting while waiting for some twisted wires to finally get hot enough to melt the solder. With the 550 that wait time is only about 10-15 seconds for your typical 12 or 14 gauge stranded wire (such as you find in larger circuits in cars). It helps to use the thinner 1.0 mm gauge rosin core solder of course. Now that I have this gun I feel like I'm set for another 20 years of use.

    Good soldering gun starter for the money

    4/5 PDXLach - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Apex Tool Group D550PK 120-volt 260/200-watt Professional Soldering Gun Kit (Tools & Home Improvement) The Weller Soldering Gun is a solid value for the price. This is a smart purchase for the electronics hobbyist or home projects solderer but it's probably not up to standards for the professionals out there. The kit tips are well shaped and the gun heats up very quickly. Be aware that for those looking to start out, this product is not a substitute for a pen style soldering iron as it's a bit too big for easy handling on detailed projects like board work.

    Is this the best there is? Time for a redesign...

    Ive owned several of these, since they are suppose to be "the best" on the market. The first one I received, one of the screws holding the tip on were in crooked and stripped out so it never tightened on right.In my opinion this tool is sub par. With my current tool, it does heat quickly, but for some reason every 10 minutes of use I have to re-tighten the screws due to loosening, or perhaps carbon buildup. This is quite inconvenient and after you unscrew it a dozen times the alloy body strips out and needs to be re-tapped with larger threads.I like my new 'home tapped' threads better anyways because with the larger screws, it hold tighter, and loosens up less often.The high setting is also a pain to use since you have to hold the trigger in half way to activate it. This is uncomfortable and cramps my fingers very quickly. Its also counter-intuitive having the high setting at half pressed in and low at fully pressed.I'm not all squawk... 3/5 Ewan C - See all my reviews This review is from: Weller 8200 Universal Soldering Gun (Tools & Home Improvement) Ive owned several of these, since they are suppose to be "the best" on the market.

    Glad to know they're still making this exact model

    5/5 GeorgeWiman (Normal, IL United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Weller 8200 Universal Soldering Gun (Tools & Home Improvement) I have had one of these for nearly fifty years, and it's been all over the country with me. I've glued the case back together with silicone, replaced the solder tips with 12 ga copper wire, and replaced the plug a time or two. Soldered everything from electrical wires to auto parts to jewelry with it. Glad to know they're still making this exact model, in case I ever need a replacement.

    The standard model that does the job

    4/5 tkeithlu - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Weller 8200 Universal Soldering Gun (Tools & Home Improvement) This is the standard been-around-for-40-years Weller general purpose soldering gun. It has the power to solder larger diameter (say, 14 gauge) wires to switches and the like, and has two heat settings, determined by how far in you pull the trigger. It also has a see-what-you-are-soldering light just above the trigger. Avoid the 7200 model if this is the sort of work you want to do - the 7200 really does not put out enough heat quickly enough for efficient work. I use one 8200 with a rope burning knife rather than a soldering tip to cut and seal small diameter nylon rope on my boat. The 7200 will not do that.

    For 7200 guns, not the same as tips for 8200 guns

    If you have a 7200 gun, these are the right tips. These tips will work with a Weller 8200 soldering gun, but are not the same. As some have pointed out, older 8200 guns have hex nuts instead of set screws, so the back ends of the tip need to be bent. That has always been the case since the bending has to be done after the nuts are put over the ends. It would be impossible for them to sell prebent tips without the nuts. If you want the prebent version for the 8200, you need to get the Weller Copper Soldering Tip 7135n With Nuts.If you have an 8200 that uses nuts, but you still want just the tip, you need the , which comes with two tips. If you have a newer 8200 with set screws, these 7235 tips will work, but aren't the ones I see pictured with newer 8200 guns. Note that these... 3/5 Wayne (Silicon Valley, CA USA) - See all my reviews, June 19, 2015

    5/5 Joe R. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Weller 7235 Replacement Soldering Gun Tip (Pack of 2) (Tools & Home Improvement) Perfect replacement for my Weller 140/100 soldering iron. I honestly had no idea I had such a good soldering iron- my old tip was so worn out that it took a good minute to get up to operating temperature. After replacing the tip, I'm not exaggerating when I say that I can melt solder within 5 seconds. Huge difference.
