This is the perfect kit to start soldering, it has everything you need for your first project!

The following is included in the kit:

  • A basic 18W 230V soldering iron from Antex. Perfect for small electronics soldering - it's light, compact and well balanced. It comes fitted with a 2.3mm chisel tip, a basic metal stand and a 1.5m PVC mains cable (UK plug).
  • An Antex 0.5mm conical replacement bit - 1105. These bits are manufactured from high-grade copper, plated first with iron and then chrome to give a long working life.
  • A 4m dispenser of Antex 0.8mm lead-free solder wire - composed of 99.25% tin and 0.75% copper.
  • Desoldering Braid - this hugely useful stuff can help save all manner of catastrophic soldering mishaps.
  • Solder Tip Tinner and Cleaner 20g - Composed of a mild acid, it helps remove baked on residue (for when you melt your desk top) and helps prevent oxidation (the nasty black stuff) that accumulates on your soldering tip when not in use.

I bought this kit to get me started, but the soldering iron just doesn't get hot enough to consistently melt the lead free solder. I can hold the solder against the iron and nothing happens for 5-6 seconds until it finally melts. Go for a more powerful soldering iron.

Response from CC: This is pretty strange - the solder should melt immediately, and does with units we've tested. Is your bit clean, and have you left the iron for a few minutes to get hot?
