Since my great grandfather first started using electric soldering irons for stained glass work, my family has only used American Beauty. I like to use the 300 Watt soldering iron that my father purchased over 65 years ago to solder reinforcement bars for church windows. The 150 Watt soldering iron is my favorite for the more intricate work I perform that calls for smaller solder joints.Its a rare company that produces a product that can be handed down through four generations and still works like it was made yesterday.
I have one of your soldering irons that belonged to my grandfather and I still use it often. It still works fine and is a treasure to me. My father's and grandfather's tools mean everything to me. American made tools can't be beat. Your product proves America sets the standard in quality . Keep up the good work.
