Sometimes, we are in cul-de-sac when planning to buying new thing for ourself or our company/institution especially when there is budget constraint. Most of the time we just don't know where to start when looking for the perfect soldering iron. Here is some tips on things need to be considered while buying a Solder Iron. Tips

  • Are they readily available? If not, you might need to stock up on replacement tips, just in case.
