Default Aldi Gas-Powered Soldering Iron Kit

I notice that among the list of Aldi DIY 'special buys' this week is a gas powered soldering iron kit.

It costs 12.99 and comes with a 3-year warranty.

It comes with four different tips, though what happens when they wear out, is anyone's guess.

Here's a clip from the spec.

Max. torch temperature: up to 1.300C (approx.)
Max. soldering temperature: up to 450C (approx.)
Max. heat blow temperature: up to 600C (approx.)

I don't need one myself - I've got two others already, but I thought it might interest other forum members:

Hope that might be of interest to someone.
