# Never touch the tip of the soldering gun. They are very hot and will give you a nasty burn. # Take great care to avoid touching the mains flex with the tip of the gun. The gun should have a heatproof flex for extra protection. An ordinary plastic flex will melt immediately if touched by a hot gun and there is a serious risk of burns and electric shock. # Always return the soldering gun to its stand when not in use. Never put it down on your workbench, even for a moment! # Work in a well-ventilated area. The smoke formed as you melt solder is mostly from the flux and quite irritating. Avoid breathing it by keeping you head to the side of, not above, your work.

Soldering gun melts tips


180 watts is way too much for a soldering iron unless you are repairing copper pipes or soldering 4 gauge wires. You can't just let that stand, it must be used or it will overheat. Harbor freight is were you buy tools that are meant to be used one time. They are junk - I'm not judging you because I don't know what project you have - it is likely a one-time project.

I just bought the soldering gun but the instructions on the package aren't very useful how do i use the gun?


A soldering gun is used much the same as a soldering iron for melting solder mainly to connect electronic components to circuit boards. To use it you plug it into the electricity mains and press the trigger. This causes the metal tip to heat up. Allow a minute or so for it to reach full heat and press it to the components you want to solder together. When they heat up press the solder against them. The solder melts and runs on and between them forming a bond. Remove the soldering iron and release the trigger. Once the trigger is released the gun starts to cool down again.

If you've used a soldering iron before you'll probably find the gun more awkward as it cools down every time you release the trigger. It's really only useful for quick jobs where you're not going to need it every few minutes. For other jobs where a lot of soldering is involved a soldering iron is better. The advantage the soldering gun has over the soldering iron is that it heats much faster for quick jobs.

I bought the gun years ago and never used it. Now I need to solder my eyeglasses frame and have no idea ho to do it. How do I start? It's a dual 140/100 watt gun


Often the material used for eyeglass frames will NOT take solder.
If you want to try soldering you likely will need a flux that has zinc chloride. You should probably use a harder solder like StayBrite. You put some flux on the joint which needs to be held fixed while soldering. You heat the joint with the soldering tip and apply a little of the solder. One should "tin" or wet the tip before using by applying flux to the tip and melting a little solder on it. Search YouTube as someone probablly has a video on soldering.

Need 2 know how 2 take temp of Lenk soldering gun model 2000.not sure if its getting 2 correct temp.whats temp supposed 2 be,in ferenheit?i have a Etex digital multimeter.really dont know how 2 use it...


It needs to be at least 600 degrees F and should reach 800 or so. 60/40 solder melts around 600, but flows better at about 700 degrees. Most soldering guns require a on-off-on--- sequence to keep the tip at proper temperature. If your gun doesn't seem to be heating, try tightening the tip nuts. Hope this helps!

Soldering gun maintenance


Start with a clean soldering tip. If it's a new tip, use sandpaper or steel wool so the metal shines. With an old tip, you may need to use a file to remove badly oxidized areas. Once the tip is clean and shiny, press the soldering gun trigger to high and as soon as it's hot, apply a coating of solder to the tip. Use a rag to spread the solder evenly over the tip. The materials to be joined must be clean, dry, and free of grease and oil. Use a wire brush or fine sandpaper to get the surfaces clean and shiny. Make a good mechanical joint. Crimp terminals with a crimping tool or pliers, and twist wires together tightly.

Solder support


If a connection is made incorrectly, you’ll need to use a de-soldering braid or a solder sucker to remove the solder and reconnect the components.

Soldering gun problem


Trying to solder components that haven’t been cleaned properly will result in weak connections. If the tip if the gun is not cleaned correctly, oxidation and deterioration may occur. Periodically running a lightly moistened cloth across the soldering gun during a lengthy work session is the best way to ensure crisp connections. However, you can also purchase special sponges and cleaning pads to care for your soldering gun.

Soldering gun Question


Where soldering irons have a heating element that heats a copper or alloy tip; in a soldering gun, the tip is also the heating element. Most soldering guns are hot enough to solder in less than 5 seconds and cool enough to touch in less than a minute. Soldering guns are ideal for the typical home electrical job like connecting speakers or installing automotive accessories. These jobs often have only a few connections to solder so a soldering gun can be a real time saver.
