I've used wire feed welding but....
Can’t live without that one.
Looks like a mess waiting to happen. Cool idea though!
That looks really cool. I always run out of hands when I'm soldering anything.
That would surely be a nice thing for me..My hands are so weak and shaky that I need both of them just to hold the iron..
I started with stick welding and loved the wire feed when I found it..
Me too, something about soft solder wire and trying to push it worried me some though! Wire feed welding was bad enough!
I have no use for a soldering gun. That is too unwieldy for my purposes when doing amp work.
I usually heat the part and add solder to it, not solder to tip.
I was looking at those guns and a bunch of them had bad reviews. It seems the wire gets balled up on the way out. Don't see reviews for that one but......
The Hakko version looks a little better:
Looks interesting...maybe I'll get one in a few years when the bugs are worked out and they're even cheaper lol! I was still welding sheetmetal with a Lincoln AC225 and a solenoid stitcher type thing when wire feed MIG welders got cheap enough for me...
I do good to use a regular soldering iron without burning myself, I'd set the neighborhood on fire with that thing
Nah! Prefer to control solder feed with my pinkies.
MIG welders with stiff wire have enough issues with wire binding. Been there done that. So I dont have high hopes for "push feeding" soft solder wire! But thought it was interesting so posted it.
