How to choose a soldering iron:
In order to do copper foil and stained glass with lead came work, you would need to use a 100W soldering iron, the two options are Hakko or Antex.
The Hakko FX601 allows you to control the temperature. This reduces the tendency to melt the lead came as well as the solder.
There is also the Antex standard soldering iron (100w) which comes 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.
The Weller 200w is a very large iron used by professionals who need the power and speed of a larger tip surface area.

Great place to start.By P Chatfield
I'm new to making stained glass projects and I found this kit ideal for me.
it give you all the things you need to start and two sheets of clear glass to practice on. tools are decent quality, particularly the cutter and soldering iron.
there is enough here to have a practice and for a few little projects once you get going. (You will need to choose and buy some stained glass, but that's it)
for me, as a complete beginner, it has been a really worth while purchase. Dispatch and delivery was very quick too; bought on Saturday, delivered Monday!
