    I tried one similar to that Wendy - not mine, I'm glad to say, as I didn't like it at all. Horribly noisy and then it just packed up. Which was a bit disappointing given that it cost its owner quite...

    Actually, I hadn't spotted the one from Israel, and as this is for a single solder job, I could probably get away with extra easy. I might give them a try. Thanks Dennis :)
