Who out there has ever used a soldering gun or iron? As a 4-H member back in the early seventies, I made my area of focus electricity projects rather than the traditional clothing projects like most of the girls. I was a rebelled in my youth! Well, sort of one.
In my electricity projects, I had many occasions to use a soldering iron. I only had a few hand tools back then and that was one of them. They all fit easily into a VERY small tool box!
I was probably more excited to get this new Ryobi solder station than maybe most folks! I love how Ryobi has brought it into the 21st century with battery powered portability. I also like the built in safety features--the holder and the indicator lights to help mitigate accidental burning.
We used the solder station to make a repair on a backyard light. You'll need to watch near the video to see what I thought of doing this project!
