SolderPro 150 Butane Soldering Iron

Post by 75X11 on Thu Jan 08, 2015 10:26 am

I work in a job that requires from time to time a completely portable soldering iron. That usually means a butane unit. They offer them at different prices and the quality directly tracks the price. I saw this unit on the mcm website and it caught my attention for this difference from other units: It comes with refillable replaceable fuel cells. If you have ever used a butane iron as a practical tool, you can appreciate the ability to do a cartridge change as opposed to a refill on site, and not having to carry a can of butane around to the work all the time. This sale price is not bad either. An iron of this quality usually runs $90-100.

I use a butane iron on a daily basis at work. Most irons are fine for the average person that may use it on an occasional basis. If you're going to use one frequently, it's worth the extra money to get a really good one. I've had a few different irons over the years, but the one that works best for what I do, is the Ultratorch UT-100Si.

Master seems to have taken over the upper end units that Weller carried. I have the non self starting version that I got around 1992. I keep it in my tool box. The one I posted about looks to be of the same level of quality.
