Big wattage for small iron

This may be a useful company to mention, who I dealt with a week ago.

Finding a disappointing leak on my Honda VT 500 petrol tank (June issue) which could be soldered, I searched the web and found CPC (at the website in Preston, while looking for a large 200 watt soldering iron.

To my delight, I found this one at £21.98, complete with a spare tip – it was well made and did the job in no time.


They have an astonishing range of more than 100 irons and other tools, if you wish to pass this on to your readers of OBM.
