It helps if you have more than one type of tip for the various jobs you will encounter.

yep it needs a 24V supply as well and you will need a few different tips. I like to have a fat tip for heavy jobs, a wedge tip and a fine tip. Performance is just a bit worse than a METCAL which is very impresive!
