Purchased this to build a regenerative shortwave radio from parts kit. Soldering iron is very well made (adjustable temp) and kit includes everything I needed including solder and side cutters. Solder-removal tool works perfectly and everything came in a convenient case PLUS a metal soldering iron base. You simply cannot beat the quality of items for the price. I added a small lock washer to the coiled stem of the iron holder (on base) and it’s perfect.
