Replacement: TOL-11101. The new version of this tool kit comes in spiffy new packaging and includes lead-free solder instead of leaded. This page is for reference only.
Description: This assortment of tools is great for those of you who are new to soldering. We've found our favorite, low-cost tools, and created a kit that we would give to our friends. While these tools might not be enough for more difficult, surface-mount type assembly, they should be just what you need for through-hole soldering.
Note: The solder spool in this kit is leaded. We prefer using leaded solder on prototypes or other non-production type things - it's easier to work with (flows better). If you're new to soldering, the leaded solder will make things a bit easier.
