It has worked reliably, but I don't use it as much as I thought I would. It it is adjustable, and on the highest setting really cooks brass! Fun to play with, if you anticipate doing a lot of brass work, but I generally use a torch. 1/200 is a pretty large scale, certainly it would be overkill for anything smaller.

: soldering unit or other possible methods or
