CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Perfect for hobbies and electronics, this kit lets you get started soldering right away.
The SP23LK Marksman Soldering Iron Kit contains everything needed to get started soldering right out of the box. Its 25-watt, 750-degree Fahrenheit heating element makes this kit an ideal choice for hobbies, crafts, kits, and electronics. The SP23L soldering iron's small profile, lightweight design, and six-foot cord give you excellent control over your workpieces for utmost accuracy and precision.
The SP23LK Soldering Kit makes easy work of soldering speaker wires, fixing remote-control cars, making jewelry, assembling circuit boards, repairing radios, and more. Its durable stainless steel barrel resists corrosion for long-term performance, and its heat- and impact-resistant handle keeps you comfortable and in complete control at all times.
High-Quality Accessories for Versatile Performance
The SP23LK Soldering Kit contains three high-quality, replaceable 1/8-inch nickel-plated copper tips, including an MT1pencil point, MT2 flat screwdriver, and MT3 chisel. The kit also includes a soldering aid that you can use for better results and increased accuracy on intricate pieces.
Durable Design and Smart Features for Long-Term, Safe Use
The SP23L soldering iron is built to last with its stainless steel barrel and impact-resistant handle. Additionally, the nickel-plated tips with copper cores resist corrosion and protect against solder creep to help maintain the iron's performance and longevity.
An indicator light lets you know when the iron is turned on, offering an added level of safety and convenience. The heat-resistant handle also adds to the safety of this tool by helping to prevent accidental burns. And the SP23L is UL-listed, which means that it meets independent safety standards. The kit is backed by a one-year warranty.

SP23L Solder Iron, three nickel-plated tips, one coil of lead-free solder, soldering aid, and user's guide.
Top Customer Reviews
It includes three nickel-plated tips: a familiar chisel point, a pencil point, and a flat screwdriver tip. It has a stainless steel barrel, an improvement of the much older models that Weller used to make. And yes, they do last for years.
Wish that I could say the same about the ColdHeat Cordless Soldering Tool, but I can't due to some serious flaws in that product. See my review on it for further details.
If the small Weller soldering iron seems too basic for your needs, take a serious look at the Weller WLC100 Soldering Station, an excellent 5-star product for the hobbyist and the do-it-yourselfer alike. Must admit that this is the next one on my shopping list.
The Weller brand from Cooper Handtools is outstanding. [...] But, make sure you understand that this particular kit - the SP23LK - is a consumer-grade item. For finer electronics work and somewhat advanced tasks such as "through-hole" and "surface mount technology" soldering and desoldering, the operating temperature of this iron is much too high and the included and available tips are much too large.) If you're just starting out in electronics and are even just somewhat serious about it, the SP23 is NOT the iron to start out on - you'll probably become quickly frustrated, burn up some components, not learn good soldering techniques, and wind up tossing the iron and your new hobby or profession. If your budget can afford it and you think you'll be spending a fair amount of time working with electronics, consider a "soldering station" such as the Weller WES51 Analog Soldering Station, Power Unit, Soldering Pencil, Stand and Sponge (outstanding price on Amazon, even with shipping!).
Otherwise, the Weller SP23LK is a good consumer-grade general purpose kit not intended for serious electronics work. I rate it 4-out-of-5-stars only because there are several other equally capable general purpose irons out there.
I used the Hakko soldering station for many years when I was in China. To be honest, Hakko has the best soldering products I have seen in my life and the major difference between Hakko and other soldering products is the Tip. Hakko's soldering tip could be covered by the tin easily for at least one year. I came to this wonderful country for my undergraduate stdy. Therefore, I have no permanent home here, thus I looked for the chep soldering product which could use the Hakko tip. Eventually, I found this one.
The inside diameter of Hakko 900M-T-1.2D (4.07mm) is exactly equal to the outside diameter of Weller's MT1 tip. Thus, the MT1 could be inserted into the 900M, perfectly. (See my uploaded photo on this product's page for more information)
Finally, we could get a good soldering Iron under 20 bucks and this soldering iron could be used to solder the SMT ICs. Actually, I do use this soldering Iron to solder the PCBs which have tons of SMT ICs.
Instead, go on SparkFun's website and get their $9.95 iron. It's vastly superior to this one, even if it does't come with all the extras.
1. the chisel tip cracked 5 minutes into soldering, then it broke off. Inside I could see bubbles of air and a thin copper core - incredibly low quality!
2. the pointed tip is neither sharp, nor round enough to make good contact with any type of component - not good.
3. power is way to low to be a useful soldering tool - barely good enough as a toy if you want to dress up as an electrical engineer for Halloween.
4. stand is a piece of bent metal, absolutely unstable and dangerous.
5. The build quality screams that it was produced for a good dollar or two - weller really blew it with this one. They clearly don't care about their brand name anymore, and would rather go for a quick short-term profit rather than brand loyalty - well - weller, you lost one more customer who was looking forward to graduating to one of your "pro" solder stations!
If you have heard good things about the brand Weller, look elsewhere - this is a cheap knock-off of a product with absolutely minimal production values - which would be ok if it did it's job - but it doesn't! Stay away!

Looks really good. I like the LED lighting. However, the iron doesn't even melt the solder that comes with it.Published 1 month ago by BuyByMail
This soldering iron works as advertised but. Feels really cheap. It will slide off of its holder by the weight of the cord.Published 8 months ago by SamIam
