What is included in this kit?
This gas soldering iron comes with a complete kit of accessories to get you started. The kit is supplied with a range of soldering tips so that you can use the soldering iron to its best performance in a range of soldering projects. The kit is also supplied with solder and a tip cleaning sponge to allow you to keep the tips clean and in good working order.

What difference does the wattage make?
The wattage of a soldering iron is one of the most important factors when deciding which one to buy. When the wattage is higher, it will deliver more power to the tip, allowing it to heat up quicker. As this is a variable wattage soldering iron, it heats up the tip in as little as 30 seconds, allowing you to start soldering without having to wait.

Do I need anything else for this soldering iron?
This soldering iron kit has almost everything you need to get started. All you need is Butane gas and you’re ready to start soldering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maplin 30W Gas Soldering Iron Kit Being retired & in-between other relaxing activities' I make static model boats, farmyard carts, etc. for display. So having one less mains cable makes a difference to knocking things over or not. This "iron" is the "Dogs Whatsits" getting onto small places to solder a bit of copper/brass wire. It is also used to "age" some of the other models I make. Another example is making fishing floats, the stem of the float can be made to look like Porcupine Quill. Used to shape plastic without damaging it. Shaping thin planks of wood for decking. To me the uses are endless & if a lost or broke the iron I would have to replace it ASAP The pics are examples of running gear for an Ice Yacht made with the help of the gas iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little soldering iron/blow torch. Well worth the money,great for those little jobs when no mains power available. Comes in a small case, just put it in my little tool tool box I keep in the car. Heats up fast, and ideal for most small electrical soldering jobs. I can recommend this handy little product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbing only worked twice I brought this to do a few jobs outside where a mains iron wouldn't be practice. Worked twice now no longer switches on allowing me to light the gas. No good don't waste your time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money. I bought one of these earlier this year and its a great little tool Unfortunately, for me it has a killer weakness, the complete unavailability of replacement tips and they wear out fast. My opinion, DON'T buy one if you want it to last more than a few uses! It's a total waste of your hard earned cash! Come on Maplin, you can do bnetter than this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets hot quickly I brought this as it had mini blow lamp as well as soldering iron facilities but was cordless. It does require filling with lighter gas to run and gets hot quickly. Instructions are vague and I struggled to understand them but once mastered I love it! It is not THE best moulded quality but it doesnt feel cheap and nasty by contrast. A great little tool that I ever wonder why I struggled with a corded electric soldring iron!

I have just purchased the gas soldering Iron but to my surprise I tried to get some spare soldering tips and found there was none made for it. So my question is will I be able to get some in the future.

Asked by: Thomas
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative. I would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
