WTB: Covering Iron for small electrics, new or exc condition please

Hello Ezoners,

I'm in dire need of a covering iron for some small balsa covered planes I bought already built; most have either Solite, Litespan, or Lightex which I've been told is temp sensitive, so I need a good one like a Black Baron or Top Flite. I'm new to covered planes, so forgive me for not knowing what "temeprature" settings I need. Before I go out and buy a new one, I thought I'd check here first. Let me know what ya have, and Paypal is ready.

Thanks!

Ronnie

I just bought a new hobbico iron from the LHS for $18.00. They have the adjustable heat settings on them. I would start out at the low heat setting and work up as needed. I have an old iron but don't think you want this one, I think it will keep heating up until it melts.
