Definitions for "Soldering gun"
Keywords:  pistol, gun, tip, trigger, preclude
a powerful tool ideal for tasks such as soldering together small metal sheets and tubes
a soldering tool that has as its tip a fast-heating resistance element which serves as a short-circuit across high-current, low voltage secondary winding of a step-down transformer built into the unit. A trigger-type switch in a pistol-grid handle permits intermittent use.
For small projects, such as electrical work, an electric soldering gun or soldering iron will provide all the heat you need to make secure soldered connections. Use the tip of the gun or iron to heat the pieces to be joined, and then apply the solder. Home Improvement Encyclopedia
