Great tool! 5 Stars

I have owned one of these soldering guns for about 7 years. My hobby is electronics/electrical repair and so I do a lot of soldering. I use this gun for pretty much everything and it has never failed me- except for that time it fell off the workbench :(... As long as you are carefull not to overheat the internals (don't hold the trigger for more than ~2 min. continuously), it will work for you for at least as long as it has worked for me!

54046 Sopldering Gun
Be careful, I have been useing solding guns for over 45 years now and I love craftsmen tools. This one came apart as I was using it today. The tip and the parts it is attached to fell out of the gun and spilled hot solder onto my worktop.This was not the solder I was useing for my project. The tip is screwed to the projections coming out of the gun but the projections are soldered to the transformer. Seems to me that they should also be screwed and not soldered.

Good soldering iron for electronics and pipes.

This soldering gun is very powerful and doesn't require any time for heating up and melting solder. Too bad it's too powerful and destroys the smaller electronic PCBs so make sure you don't touch it too close to thin electronic PCBs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Disappointing

Tip options are poor. Not good for precision soldering. The big dislike was after using it for a minute you have to wait for a five minute cool down or you can damage the gun. So, I bought a craftsman 45w soldering iron it is much better.

Soldering gun with very fast heat-up time

This is the best soldering gun I have used for electronics. It's probably meant for other heavy duty stuff but I like the fast heat-up time and use it for macro-electronics to solder wires to PCBs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Pay the extra and get a good one like this!

I've gone through a lot of different brands. I should have purchase a good one like this the first time. I'd have saved money in the long run.

Solder Gun 150/230 watt

So far it looks great and comes with 3 different tips, cleaning tool and some solder. No case but a graet price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Heats Fast

I bought this for my boyfriend for his automotive class. He says he likes it more than other solders. It heats quickly and it has other tips. The price is reasonable.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is an excellant tool to have. I like my solder gun.

First of all I really like the package deal that came with my Solder Gun. All I had to do was to open the package and start soldering. What more can I say, I really like it and I am quite happy with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman Let Me down

This gun has constantly given me problems and worked good for the first time i bought it. After about three months of use (once a month) it now takes over 10 minutes to heat up and barely gets hot enough. The tip assembly comes out of the gun constantly and when the tip is pressed against the solder, the light dulls and the gun loses power. I don't know if there is a warranty, but if there is i hope mine was just a lemon and the next one is good. Sorry craftsman, but i am just telling the truth. I will keep purchasing Craftsman, because besides this product everythin is always quality.
