    Curious to see how many people own a soldering iron and know how to use it.

    Yes, I use it about every other week to monthly. I wish there was range between 1 mod and straight bleeding Solder and having wires for veins. I would say I am familiar with my soldering iron and know how to use it to a basic extent

    i have a desoldering iron but not an actual soldering one. I use a 50w wood burnisher with a soldering tip.

    Once upon a time, I was a Commodore Amiga technician. probably 70 percent of everything I did back then required a soldering iron.

    I wish i had a GOOD iron though. Although to be fair, the need for it in my life has deminished substancially over the years.
