Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an expensive tool. And, while it works, it's no substitute for a decent blowtorch - nor is it meant to be.
It's very useful when soldering near skirting boards, wallpaper or flammable substances.
If you watch the youtube video demonstrating this, it shows the tool producing a very nice clean and neat joint. I couldn't get it to produce such a clean, neat joint. The joints I made were ok, they were watertight - no dry joints - but they were not as neat as the ones on the video.
This should be seen as an addition to - not a replacement for - a decent blowtorch.
There are 2 versions of this tool. One has 230watt elements, the other has 120watt elements. Get the 230watt 'Professional' version. The 120watt tool is not powerful enough to heat the joint in a reasonable time.
