Dude I have often wondered about that thing. I just dont see how it can work.


Although HDTony fully supports the idea of you buying one so he can try it




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

i have tried it once, didn't own it, but borrowed it from a friend, not worth it. It doesn't work nearly as well as they make it claim. I don't recommend it, or at least I didn't like it

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

I have that tool. Good concept and good idea but it doesn't work to good for everyday soldering. The only thing its good for is if you are soldering something on the back of circuit board. Pretty much the way it works is you need to have a dead short arcross the two solder tips of the tool, if they are not shorted together it doesn't get hot. I made the mistake of pressing down too hard trying to use it one time and broke the tip. I ordered a new tip and they charged me almost as much as the tool cost for the tip.

Buy a regular solder iron, that thing is POS.

How you been Chris? You're married now too eh? Me to!

Take care!

I have one and it works fine for small quick jobs and fine soldering (ie circuit boards). Have a 25w one with 4 tips for big stuff. :laugh
