      Great tool if you use it for its intended purpose

      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...

      Ok only for VERY light work
      I bought this to solder some speaker crossovers I was assembling, because my old soldering iron died on me. When it's at operating temperature, it works fine, but when it reaches the shutdown temperature and cools down, it takes forever to heat back up for normal use

      Soldering Iron

      This soldering iron has worked for the occasional use that I've needed it for. It heats up, it melts solder. That's about all that I need a soldering iron to do, so I'm happy.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Decent basic soldering iron

      I only have occasional soldering needs, so I was happy to pick up a reasonably priced iron with the Craftsman name. Nice looking tool and I'm happy with it.

      Good value for little electronics jobs

      Nice to have multiple tips. I used the small cone tip to solder connections to led light strips.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Very good value

      I've been using a 20+ year-old soldering iron for a long time. I don't solder often but once or twice a year I need to do so. I got this one on sale and am very happy with it. It's made in Taiwan which generally has a better reputation in the tools community than China. I tested it once and it heated up reasonably quickly. I like the extra tips that come with the package. Not many other models in this price range give you extra tips.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      pretty good

      Picked this up recently to fix a chip on my vehicles remote. It takes a while to warm up and use. Otherwise I haven't had any issues with this product yet.

      Good for those small jobs.

      It heats up nicely and quickly...the stand is not real safe so you will have to be careful that it does not fall or near anything.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      craftsman soldering iron

      This soldering iron it works ok, but not as good as I expected because the quality of the product is not good enough compared to other brand. However, this price of this soldering iron is very affordable, so it makes the best choice for hobbyist but not for processional use.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
