Well since my UV has decided to die (due to the crappy barrel jack it came with being too large for the cavity it inhabits) its time to turn yet again to the fun, see how many times you can burn yourself in a short period of time, activity of soldering. Now normally I'll pilfer my mates soldering Iron but he's down at uni at the moment so I'm stuck without one and will have to *finally* get round to buying myself one!
Now as easy as it might be to just go pick up any old iron and plug away at giving myself melted skin, it's a Sunday so I have the time to procrastinate about which iron to get i.e. what do you guys have/recommend?
I'm not looking to spend a fortune on a soldering iron but a good one that doesn't take 40 minutes to melt a bit of solder might be good
