Tool Review – Dremel Gas Soldering Iron

Soldering Iron

Soldering IronI first used my Dremel soldering iron (Dremel Hobby VersaTip 6 in 1 Heat Tool) when I was fixing my Ignition, I have subsequently used it for soldering a load of corroded wires together to try and get Steph to work more consistently, and have been using it on my Affordable Accessible Mouse.

When I first got this Item from Amazon I wondered just how big it was! it came in a huge box; containing a display box, which itself contained a Metal Tin embossed with the Dremel name. The Tin contained all the parts of the soldering iron laid out neatly and easily to see, and as you can see from the image above there are a large number of them, the only thing you  need extra is gas; and with a single charge lasting ages that wont break the bank either.

First impressions were that the tool is awesome; It has a lovely quality feel and its performance in soldering is great, I also used the hot air gun attachment for shrinking heat shrink tubing.

RandomZero also owns one now; I look forward to his feedback of using it as a hot air gun, and perhaps for Pyrography as well.
