Best solder ironBy Lorraine Smith
I replaced my Weller 100w Solder Iron with this model and I am absolutely delighted with the performance of this tool. It’s light weight, heats up quickly and so very reliable. Thank you to the team at Creative Glass Guild who provided me with great support and guidance to ensure I could continue my craft making without any further problems. Highly recommended.

A Great UpgradeBy Sue
I bought this to replace a Weller 100W iron which I have been using almost daily for about 6 years. I have been using the Weller iron with 7mm number 7 tips and K 60:40 solder for 3D copper foil projects.
This Hakko iron came with a 6.5mm tip included which has proved to be a better size for my work (I have to reach into very tight gaps). The iron heated up much faster than the Weller and seemed to maintain a more constant temperature compared to the Weller iron even using a brand new Weller tip. I set the temperature on the Hakko iron to 360C and my solder melted beautifully. My work did not feel as hot as usual so my hands welcomed this!
The Hakko iron is much lighter and smaller than the Weller but after a few minutes of use I got used to this and actually preferred it. The Hakko fits on my Weller stand so I dont have the added expense of buying a new stand. The electrical lead is a good length and is flexible.
Creative Glass Guild (CGG) kindly recommended this iron to me and "so far so good" - I am really pleased I bought it. The service and delivery from CGG was, as usual, superb.

Great toolBy Kat
Great powerful tool. Small, lightweight, perfect! Called the best iron for soldering stained glass by many. And it consumes half of energy than Weller soldering iron (47W).
