Double Helix Oil Wand, 12.5 inch

Double Helix Oil Wand, 12.5 inch

Item# 7183DH
Oil Wand, April 28, 2010 3 stars
Pros
Makes beautiful images in Kaleidoscopes.
Cons
It is a larger size than the wand that comes in the Kit, so it can't be used as a replacement wand for the kit or as additional wands for the kit scopes. Also you can not select colors you get what you get, so you can end up with all of the wands the same color in an order.
Other Thoughts
The product description is relatively vague about size and compatibility with other Clarity Products. The photos for all of the oil wands are the same as the photos for the kit, which infers that the wands are the same diameter and only the double helix lists a diameter.

Worth the Price, December 7, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Reliably maintains heat on even long beads. Works well with many different solder types and melting points.
Cons
Handle gets a little warm when used for extended periods.
Other Thoughts
This is a great iron and worth the extra money. I have used mine for about 2 years without any problems. It heats up quickly and stays at operating temperature even while soldering long beads, allowing even and consistent beads.

The packaging is not useful for storage.
