An interesting fact to remember in buying a about soldering iron is that the wattage does not control how hot the iron gets. Wattage controls how fast the iron heats and how fast it regains its operating temperature after completing each solder joint. Fifty WATTS is common and at that wattage the iron maintains a stable temperature and reheats quickly. Find a variety of soldering irons at We-Supply.com in range of 20 WATTS to 60 WATTS. Select pencil thin solder irons for miniature components as well as temperature controlled professional irons. Find soldering kits that include cutter, solder, pliers as well as solder iron.
