Soldering iron for service work

<< < (2/2)

PetrosA:
I just wanted to come back to this and say Thanks Simon! I got an Antex 18W G/3U and a 3/32" chisel tip (which I think will be good for general stuff). I've used it a few times and it blows anything else I've ever had out of the water! Excellent recommendation!

Simon:
good, yes my 12W iron is fine for any electronic assembly, I'd only need something bigger for large items

tyblu:
I use a little butane torch for automotive work. You can get pretty good with them and they're very quick, but it takes practice before you can use it for customers.

Simon:
hehe I'd just use an inverter

PetrosA:
I already have an inverter mounted in the back of my truck for chargers, so I don't need to play around with propane/butane or a 12V iron but if I did, Antex makes one.
