In praxis, it´s possible to heard various opinions on “transformer soldering tools”. Usually this is the first type of a soldering tool with which a young electro-technician begins. It´s small, a tip heats up quickly, doesn´t take a lot of space, it´s easily transportable and last but not least it´s also price - affordable.
From the point of view of a professional working with SMT components it can be reproached, that it´s not suitable for SMT components of 0603/ 0402 and similar, it creates a pulse at switching on (weak ESD safety) and it has no soldering tip temperature control.

Despite this, many of us are glad to return to it sometimes, because it´s simply “handy” :-). It provides a magic of an easy application of a solder and a colophony in a single step by a classic way, when we take a bit of a solder on a hot tip and after switching off (during cooling down) we immerse a tip into a colophony. This way we get prepared one “soldering dose” on a tip, suitable for soldering of poorly solderable joints (depending on features of a solder and colophony). At the same time, it´s very convenient in case we need to have one hand free for holding a soldered component, wire, …

Even a small stability of a tip temperature can be bypassed by experience (not too long heating) and the risk of sensitive components damage can be considerably decreased if we always switch on a soldering tool before touching a given component, and similarly - switch off after taking away a tip from a component.

It can be said, that a quality soldering station is irreplaceable for a serious work, but there are many cases, where a classic pistol-type soldering tool alike. In respect to an extraordinary affordable price level of the Toolcraft SP200 and also other in our offer (10-20 Eur), this tool is a suitable complementary tool for every electro workshop and for a work in places, where a transport of a bulky soldering station might be quite impractical.

Toolcraft SP200 has a more robust tip, suitable also for bigger joints. On the opposite side, soldering tools of the series ETP use classic relatively thin tips usable even for small soldering tools.
