Rated 5 out of 5 by from another winner from dremel another winner from dremel. Very well made very versatile bit of kit. Would have liked a zip up case and not a tin. Dosen't affect the ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bit of kit You will need lighter fuel for this. Easy to get, easy to fill. Comes with a range of tips. Instructions could be more detailed, but there’s plenty online. Marked one star down for not including pyrography tips. The box blurb says it’s suitable for this, but bits not included. Soldering tip heats really quickly. Safe to put down to cool. Range of other tips in the metal box it comes in. Being gas there is no need for trailing leads. Refilling also doesn’t need electric power - so good in the field.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great multi-purpose tool! My primary purpose for buying this was for minor electrical work, specifically heat-shrink installation in places where my electric heater can't be used due to lack of mains power and inaccessible spots in tight corners. The presentation is good, but while the carrying case is very neat, it could benefit from a robust hinged lid and stout catch to stop the contents spilling out. That's a minor point and a big rubber band will sort this. I am unlikely to use some of the accessories, and had originally thought i would use it in open-flame mode, which requires the catalyst to be removed. However, the hot air tip turned out to be absolutely ideal for heat-shrink, being flameless and small, so easily directed, and the deflector works very well too in this situation. The solder tip is easily interchanged with the hot air tip, so it is simple to solder wires, swap the tip for the hot air one, and heat-shrink the joint, all without removing the catalyst. The knife will be useful for cutting/sealing terylene cord and a few other tasks. All in all I expect this tool to be a very useful addition to my toolkit. I have only given 3 stars for reliability as I have only had it for a few days, but it's simplicity and design lead me to believe it will prove to be reliable in the long term.

What metal can this weld?

Asked by: Bjorn
Hi Bjorn, This is a butane-fuelled soldering iron and can be used for soldering (not welding) metals such as copper and thin steel.
