excellent  Time owned: more than 12 months
When I built my K2 circa 2001, I started the kit with a borrowed Xytronic 168.....but after 1/3 done the ham who owned it needed it for repairs of his equip. So I bought a Radio Shack unit, which worked OK but the iron was much bigger and unwieldy. By extreme good luck I happened upon a brand new never used 168 at a garage it for 10 bucks!!! Finished the K2 using it and it has been and still is the best 10 bucks I've ever spent for a ham tool.

reliable, always ready  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've owned and used the Xytronic for more than ten years. It has never failed, always ready to work. I like the temp meter and the indicator lights for power on off and when the tip is heating. Also the iron holder is mounted on the unit and not separate.

It has proven to be very reliable and the auto-temp accurate through years of use.
