Default Black & Decker CI 500

Power Tools - Decorating - Craft Tools - Craft & Soldering Iron - BLACK & DECKER Power Tools Product Details

I have been thinking of building some Cmoys and sell on the internet to earn a little extra cash. And so i need a good soldering iron. Would this be a good choice?

I also wonder if it's possible at all to use a cheapish no-name 40w (or was it 60w?) soldering iron.

Temperature controlled one is much better. It's also better to get one from a company who specializes in electronics tools rather than toasters an gardening equipment

What do you recommend?
I don't want to buy something that's way too expensive.

Niklas, forget about no-name brands there. Sooner or later youŽll need a new tip and your two kroner wonder will need a size not known to mankind.
For the use you have in mind (i.e. not professional) Black&Decker is good bang for the buck.

Well. The idea is to try to get it at xmas. And then build myself a cmoy. Try to sell it and then build another one and so on. And hopefully i can get something else later.

But it's a good starting-set, that CI 500? I mean, it has that sponge, some holders and so.

As a starting set IŽd say youŽll be fine (donŽt forget to wet the sponge ).

What on earth is a Cmoy?

Will remember that. And will have a glass of water ready if something wants to catch fire

The Cmoy is a portable headphone amplifier.
