About Soldering Guns
Soldering dates back 5,000 years, and although there were no circuit boards to conquer back then, crafting jewelry, stained glass, and cookware demanded primitive soldering techniques. Luckily, a good soldering gun makes the job a lot quicker and easier nowadays. A cordless soldering gun is great for outdoor use, such as fixing a yard light, or for working up a ladder or under your car; it is also convenient, with no cord to get in your way as you work. However, an electric soldering gun is usually more lightweight, making it ideal for prolonged workbench projects with access to mains electricity. Soldering is widely used in electronics, metalwork, jewelry making, and plumbing, and reliable sellers on eBay offer a large selection of soldering tools in a range of types and wattage for different uses. Choose a low-wattage tool for delicate electronic applications, and a high-wattage soldering gun, preferably with a temperature control feature, for heavy-duty applications.
