Ungar Soldering

without comments

Need help with my new soldering iron.?

So I own a soldering iron that won't heat up, at all(Got it at a electronic sale). So my dad gave me this crappy one he found in his truck. The wire on it is strange. It is just one single wire, with a smal alligator clip. How would I power this thing? Also, if anybody has any suggestions on how to fix my old one, that would be great.

The thing with only one wire isn't a soldering iron.
It's probably a continuity tester.

If your real soldring iron is an Ungar with a screw-in heater,
you can get a replacement heater for it -- but they are not cheap
($27 to $60), so you might as well buy a whole new iron.

Some Weller irons also have replaceable heaters
but, again, there is a price problem.

I've picked up some good soldering irons for low prices at estate sales,
but, of course, it's usually impossible to know
when and where something usable will turn up.

A good electronic parts store should have a decent selection of soldering irons,
and even Radio Shack has a number of items that may be of interest:

64-2802, $9.99
64-2071, $10.99 (40 watts: may be a bit too hot for small projects)
64-2055, $11.99
64-182, $12.99
64-2184, $31.99 (selectable power of 20 or 40 watts)

The 64-094 ($20.99) is switchable to 20W or 50W;
probably not a good choice for some users.

Avoid the J-012 and J-020 (55047998 and 55047999)
-- they are for very small work, not general soldering.

Another source is MCM Electronics, which has a large selection of irons.
Here, avoid any item for which there are no replacement tips listed.
In fact, the best general policy would be to buy only Weller
or Tenma (MCM's house brand) soldering products from this source.
