Followed the instructions to make it. And it works great. I am working on etched parts and using solder paste. No warping and no need to clean up excess solder. I like the idea that I don't have to tin anything. I will post a picture of my project when it is finished.

A Resistance Soldering Iron Kit, For Beginners And Experts Alike

Use this kit to make a resistance soldering iron that is designed for use by hobby modelers and jewelers who work with any of photo etched parts, etched brass kits, silver, nickle silver, thin brass and other copper based metals plus thin mild steel.

Two soldering tip power settings: 3v-10 amp, 6v-10 amp.
Power from household 115 or 230v AC
CE certified transformer is exclusively made for us and designed for hobby modeling and jewelry making.

Advantages

There are many!

    Heat is localized at the point where the soldering iron tip touches the metal.

    Localized heating is nearly instantaneous so nearby joints are not affected. The result is that you can make joints that you could not make with a conventional soldering iron.

    Hobby modelers can solder photo etched parts, etched brass kits and other thin copper based metals without warping or scaring surfaces.

    Eliminates the need for a torch. Not only is there no flame or burn hazard, because the heat is localized, there is no oxidation or fire scaling of the work and therefore no requirement for pickling. Great for jewelry work!

    Burn hazards are eliminated because soldering probes cool rapidly.

    Removing enamel from magnet wire is fast and efficient.

    They are particularly time efficient with solder paste. There is no need for flux, pre-tinning, or after soldering flux and excess solder cleanup.

    Material and operating costs are lower.

    If you use flux, you need less because flux activation is higher.

    Solder use is lower because tip pretinning and conditioning is eliminated.

    Power consumption is reduced. While conventional soldering irons are continuously on, resistance soldering irons are on demand units and that demand is typically only 1 to 4 seconds.

    Power consumption can be lowered further by adjusting power to exactly what is needed.

    Soldering iron tips and probes last longer.

    Damage to heat sensitive parts is eliminated. This makes for efficient circuit board repair.

In short these are efficient, on demand units that allow for fine scale and general high quality soldering.
