How to choose a soldering iron:
If you are keen to expand from copper foil into making stained glass with lead came work, you should choose the Hakko iron, as you can contol the temperature. This reduces the tendency to melt the lead came as well as the solder. There is also the Antex standard soldering iron (100 watts) which come with an energy regulator permiting iron to be used for stained glass soldering applications where lower temperatures are required to reduce lead came melting or where a boost to heat is required, for example in copper foiling work, the user can adjust according to their technique. It can be adjusted manually using the dial on the mains plug.
If you intend to just use the tiffany foil technique, the 80w Weller is a great iron for foil work with Weller build quality. For a budget option we offer the Antex Iron, which can get hot but will do the job when copper foiling and offers incredible value for money!
The Weller 200w is a very large iron used by professionals who need the power and speed of a larger tip surface area.
