  • I got this iron with my funds from free day. I thought I was getting an upgrade from the one they sell for $9.99, but as of right now the $9.99 one is working better. When I unwrapped the unit it had a burn mark on the power cord but ot didn’t look to go through to the internal wires so I put some liquid tape on and then covered that with electrical tape. The unit says it is heating up and maintaining temperature but I could not de-solder any components with this iron and was unable to solder anything with it using the lead-free solder either. Not really sure where to go from here…Guess it is back to the cheap-o

No public wish lists :(
