Gromit Posted August 27, 2007 Share Posted August 27, 2007 My aging Gascat is past its best and doesn't work anymore. When it was younger, it was brilliant. Heated up in seconds, enough heat to solder biggish wire. So good, I never used the electric iron. It even worked in a breeze. A month or 2 ago, while wondering round B&Q, I bought one of these. Used it in anger for the first time yesterday. Anger really was the word, it's rubbish. Makes noise but no heat. Ended up heating the tip of it in a propane torch and then tried to quickly solder a blob on while it cooled. Any recommendations for a GOOD gas iron. I'd buy a gascat again but can't find them. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
