Soldering guns

Recommended Posts

Hi Les here. I am looking to purchase a Weller soldering gun. I have noticed that they offer several wattage ranges. Does anyone know  which range would be appropriate for soldering photo etch. I have a Weller WES51 soldering station that works well for smaller stuff, but I require something more powerful for the larger assemblies.

Look into the Weller model WLC100.  It is adjustable and the actual pencil iron is replaceable as well as the tips.  I purchased the WLC100 a year ago and use it a lot.

Check out this link to Paul Budzik's video on soldering.  The unit he uses is very expensive commercial version similar to the WLC100.
