This little soldering iron work's great for its intended purpose. No soldering iron is designed for heavy duty soldering. That's why they make soldering guns.
I've noticed that so many of these negative reviews are written by people who have tried to use the tool for another purpose than it design can sustain.
Oh, my soup spoons are a bad design because when I tried to shovel the snow off my drive with them they didn't work very well...

This soldering iron is perfect for my soldering needs. I have another brand item that has not met up to my expectations. This Craftsman product is made with good quality and works very well.

The nickel alloy barrel of the iron changed color due to excessive heat. It is described as a general purpose tool but it is way too hot for electrical components. I would return it for a refund, but I noticed that the guarantee only allows a replacement. So I guess I am stuck with it.

I have used many soldering irons and stations. This is by far the worst that I have ever seen. The chisel tip actually melted a hole through the end of the tip after two uses. Switched to the large conical tip - half of the tip literally melted away after 15 minutes. I am using 62/36/2, .032", 1.1% flux solder - nothing exotic or corrosive. Tip was tinned. The iron was not left plugged in for hours - I plug it in, let it heat up, do my soldering, unplug it. Really sad day when the Craftsman name is applied to such a poor quality product. The "expert" at Sears told me that I abused my iron and that the tip was not covered under warranty. I have spent more years soldering than this "expert" has spent working. Not honoring the warranty has me seriously considering replacing ALL my Craftsman products with another brand. Never again Sears, never again.
