For this post, I have put together a collection of the best soldering irons currently available.
UPDATED: August 14, 2019.
Soldering irons are relatively simple tools that have a metal tip that is typically electrically heated and uses an insulated handle. The tip is used to heat a metal alloy solder that forms a bond between two pieces when it cools. The most common use is for electronic components.
