New Tool: Milwaukee M12 Soldering Iron (2488-20)

While doing extensive work on my car, I accidentally tore the connector off the oxygen sensor connection. Not the oxygen sensor side, of course. The engine wiring harness side. Yeah.


I’ve been needing a new soldering iron for some time now, and had my sights set on this one well before the pandemic had begun. This dumb wiring accident pushed things forward, so I went ahead and ordered. Once it showed up I was glad I spent the extra money. This thing is great. If it holds up, it will likely have been one of the better things I decided to spend some extra money on.
