Can u use the Weller universal soldering gun for making and repairing jewelry?

Unless you are only interested in soldering tin/lead joints... I sincerely believe that answer to be "No"...

What kind of metals were you planning on working with
would be a GREAT PLACE to start...

and the figure out the temperatures you will need to achieve..

A word of extreme CAUTION.

Working surfaces have to be able to withstand EXTREME TEMPERATURES.

Cement will come apart with explosive force... and getting any water onto molten metal can also have catastrophic consequences... so a little supervised experience would be well advised place to begin...

Is there good operating instructions, or manual for Weller 8200 N 100/140 watts gun?

There are normally three of the same type. They are consumable, you don't need to stock all the different types - just buy the one you need for your current project.

Note, these are high power and were commonly used for soldering wires in the point-to-point wiring used in old tube electronics. Do not use this on a Printed circuit board - it will damage any silicon component.

Use a a soldering pencil for printed circuit boards.

Is there a manual for this tool - I just got it but it did not have a manual and I have never used a sodering gun before. Or is there a good website with instructions. Thanks

There are several websites that teach you how to use the tool including tips. you can go to weller .com the most important tip is once its plugged in and depending on the soldering gun. some are activated by a trigger and some are not, handle the tip with care because it gets extremely hot and can cause injury if one is not careful. if the tip is hot keep it away from anything that can ignite or flammable materials. its a good tool for making permanant wire splices, used in conjunction with tinned solder and flux. not recommended for doing pc board repair because of the extreme head produced. can also be used to shrink tubing around wire splices. good luck!

I have a old modal 8200.140/100 watts. tip will get hot enough to melt the solder if you touch the tip with the solder.but will not get the wire(18 Gauge} hot enough to melt the solder.

Hello, does your soldering gun humm? If it humms then recycle the parts. There is short across the winding which causing the humm. If not, then make the you have right soldering tip for your Weller gun. Also make sure there is good tight connect on the solder tips with the barrel screws.
It could be a faulty two way trigger switch with internal diac controller. You can order switches from this web site: GB...stewbison

I just plugged in my new weller 8200pk soldering gun and the tip bubbled up. doesnt seem normal, what is wrong? its the tip it came with.

Was it copper that bubbled up or just some kind of covering? If the latter, just scrape off the residue, then tin the tip as normal. If it was the first, it would have been a flaw in the copper--just replace the tip with a new one. It's hardly worth trying to get warranty on it. Hope this helps!
