Combo soldering iron and heat "gnu"

I am considering buying a gas combo soldering iron and heat “gnu”.

Are they any good?

Any one used/has one?

Cheers.

We use them all the time at work, but that’s mostly on site stuff and a lot of the time onsite has no power.

Great for cooking heat shrink thou. Savings getting out electric heat g**

At home I find my goot electric soldering iron is warms up faster and way better for delicate electrics (originally bought to build battery packs) than the gas ones

I have both the 85w Goot and the full station and they are the best Irons I ever used period ! Expensive but worth every cent :+1:

I avoid when I can and have thrown away quite a few.
Difficult to regulate temp.
Short working time.
Excess heat to item being worked on and surrounds.
Nozzle blockage.
Leaks.

In the workshop I only use gas for silver brazing, when oxy is not needed and for quick chats with redbacks.

I have both. And the gas one has its place but the electric one gets far more use. Pretty much the long and the short of it
