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.

At the moment, it actually costs me money to keep this site up. Some of the product links you see are Amazon affiliate links. I’ve gone out of my way to make sure to only link to products that I myself use, that I would use, or that fit a specific application and are best purchased from Amazon. You’ll notice as well that I have some product links to other sites. These are instances where there was no acceptable product on Amazon, or Amazon charged significantly more. I only make money from the Amazon links.

So if you like what you’ve seen on my site, or you’ve felt that it helped you and you’d like to help me keep the site up, please consider using the Amazon links. And also consider throwing some satoshis my way: 3L74fDSVd1YDzyp18p9VJPPa6Kdw47xVKk
