Weller W100PG Heavy-Duty Soldering Iron, 100Watts, 120Volts
Weller W100PG 100 Watt Soldering Iron automatically regulates a constant 700°F tip temperature with an initial heat-up time of just 110 seconds. Uses Weller’s "closed loop" method of controlling and maintaining tip temperature, once heated up, solder for hours non-stop.

Other types of soldering irons have a dial to regulate the tip temperature. Not on the W100PG, it is not necessary.
The logic behind Weller's W100PG 700-degree standard tip. All stained glass solder types, 60/40 and 50/50, melt below 495 degrees Fahrenheit. If the iron tip is heating at 700 degrees, the solder will liquefy instantly with iron tip contact.
All soldering iron tips will collect impurities from the solder and flux so tip maintenance is required. The impurity build-up will decrease the effectiveness of the tip where the solder does not liquefy as quickly. In most instances, the iron tip can be brought back to peak performance by easily treating the tip with Sal Ammoniac.
A hobbyist or professional can count on this soldering iron to deliver the necessary constant and consistent tip temperature. Highly recommended for Copper Foil, Lead, or Zinc.
