Hey Northern Touch, you must be one of the lucky ones. Could you give me some pointers on how to use it? :> I got it mainly to repair jewelry and solder small things together and it worked once for me. I've tried replacing the batteries and that didn't seem to make a difference..... I loved it when it worked.... Thanks for any kind of help you could give! :>

My opinion, ditch the Hot cold soldering gun, they are a pain to use, i had one and took it back. Get a traditional soldering iron and and starty from there. The hot cold gun has two small tips that need to make contact to warm up, it just makes it a real pain to use, especially for someon just starting.

the cold heat is the worst soldering gun ever. get a real one you baby! =] but really its so much better to use regular 40 watt or 20 watt ones

If you've got the $$, get a MetCal model 200. The tips are easily changable cartridges, and come in a variety of temperatures.
