CLASSIC DESIGN CANNOT BE BEAT!

by Fred on 10/24/2008

As I recall, Weller first came out with this soldering gun design about 40-50 years ago. I was then a new, young scientist who demanded the latest, most modern equipment in my lab -- and this was it. Over the years, the other old fashioned designs fell by the wayside (like the elecric soldering iron that could barely be lifted and felt more like an arc welder and couldn't be used for fine detailed soldering). Then, the other day I needed a NEW soldering gun. Although I still had my 40 year old Weller -- which still worked perfectly (!) -- all its tips were gone. So, one after another, I ordered two much cheaper Weller-like, knock off soldering guns -- manufactured you-know-where. The first one barely melted solder while the second one overheated! Finally, I broke down and ordered the Weller (WEL8200PK) Universal Soldering Gun Kit # 8200PK. I "desrved" a NEW Weller. I was a kid again! To my great surprise, during some 40 years its price had actually come down! My new Weller seems a bit lighter in weight than my old one (lighter weight materials?) but it does the same job neatly and safely. WELLER'S CLASSIC DESIGN CANNOT BE BEAT!
