Soldering Tools & Accessories
Repair electrical work with a soldering gun
Soldering guns give you the most power and heat for sensitive metalworking jobs. Unlike welders, soldering irons do not melt two metals together. Instead they use solder, a metal alloy with a lower melting point, to join two pieces together. A trigger mechanism powers these solder guns. When the trigger is pulled, it heats the solder tip very quickly, but once released it cools in seconds. This is the ideal tool when you are working on a project that requires intermittent soldering. Sears has options that have dual heat triggers so you can choose between two heat settings for varied projects.
You'll want to use a soldering iron for smaller projects that require more precision and less heat. Their lower heat makes them ideal for fixing wires or a faulty electrical connection in the switches in your home. Unlike soldering guns, irons are continuously heated. They can be electrically powered, or battery operated for greater portability. Since the element is constantly hot, you'll need to have a holder nearby to safely stow your iron as you move from project to project.
From metal projects large to small, soldering tools can get the job done. Come by Sears to get the soldering guns and soldering irons you need for your toolbox.
