Soldering guns are just too unwieldy. Much better off with a good soldering iron.

I rmeember trying to mod my playstation with a soldering gun and it was a nightmare. When the Wii came out I had to get a soldering iron because that chip's leads were super tiny and close together.

its almost like they are made for 2 different jobs!!!

seriously though... soldering guns are for soldering wires together, not circuit boards. the higher wattage and bigger tips allow you to get more solder hot, quicker, and in colder/windier conditions.​

The image on Amazon literally shows them soldering a circuit board.

Cancelled mine too. 6 pieces is what I'm thinking with the weight of 4lbs.

You risk burning the board as these get very hot very quickly, wouldn't recommend using them on anything sensitive.

About like using a sledgehammer to beat in ten penny nails.

I have the same one now and am also happy with it. Couldn't afford such a nice one back in the day.

the image on amazon literally shows nothing as the deal is dead and points to nothing. even so, who cares? images on amazon show all sorts of stuff. if you're going off of amazon images to tell you what to buy for what uses, you're going to have a bad time.

point being, a soldering iron isnt always the better tool, as your post suggested.
