Cold Heat
I saw a new soldering iron demonstrated recently made by Cold Heat. Really nice demostration, very little heat and you can touch the tip almost immediately afterwards.

Was wondering if anyone's using this and what you thought of it. Thanks!

cold heat
interesting; saw something years ago that was on the same principle as a welder, but it was a soldering iron with foot control immediate heat; it worked very well; saw this in an alternator and starter repair shop.

It appears to use the principle of resistance soldering. It's a technique that's used in model railroading. It allows two pieces to be soldered together without heating up the whole assembly. The heat is very localized. For example, when soldering many brass detail parts to a brass locomotive assembly, one wouldn't want to heat up the assembly in a conventinal soldering iron situation. As you try to solder the next part on, the previous three fall off!!!

A very very nice way to solder when heat control is needed.

Here is a link to purchase one for $19.95. I also thought of getting one......You would still need to get the material you are soldering up to temp to wick the solder. If not the joint is weak and the potential for faulty connections increases.

If you do a search on Yahoo, there are some posted reviews that didn't read too well. I remember one said it was built cheap and fell apart. Another said it didn't work but a couple of times. I was going to buy one also, but the backorder situation put me off. I'll wait and see when they get caught up with the orders, how it's working out for the users.

My parents-in-law bought me one for my birthday.....haven't received it yet due to the backorder. I hope it works well because I have a lot of uses for it already. I used to own a butane powered one from Radio Shack....but after a year it finally took a dump on me. I will keep you guys informed on how it works.
P.S. I can't remember....so do you heat up the solder...or do you heat up the component you are soldering it too? Common sense would tell me that you would heat up the solder...but who knows. Thanks!

http://www.asseenontv.com/prod-page...dering_set.html That one is not really a Resistance Soldering tool. This is what one really looks like. The cost isn't really worth it, because we would never make use out of it. Unless your really into soldering electronics. The 250W basic set up cost $420.95. I was going to buy one, but thought it would really be a waste of money for me. http://www.ares-server.com/Ares/Are...oduct&ID=80462A

Take Care,

You almost always apply the heat to the part, until it is hot enough for the solder to melt AGAINST THE PART. Heating the solder is just a formula for bad connections - as soon as it hits the cold part, wham! solid, but without flowing into the joint.

Now that makes sense too....Probably just depends on what you are soldering.....I use flux....so that should help it get to where it needs to go.
Thanks

Interesting! I ordered mine back in June and still have not received it. Maybe we all need to pay those folks a visit.

I called yesterday and the told me it will be another 2-3 weeks from yesterday....that's the only thing the company has told her. They say that they didn't expect this much of a turnout so they are way backordered. Dumb Dumb Dumb!!Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!
