    I am looking for a butane soldering iron. Probably something that can solder a PL259 and smaller. Any one that can offer a suggestion or has one that they like?

    You need to be careful using that so you don"t melt the dielectric in the coax.

    Dollar Stores sell a nice butane torch for $5. I've been using it quite a bit. Pot smokers use them for smoking dabs, but I use them for soldering.

    I have one of those as well. Had it a lot longer than 10 years too and it still works great. Actually for being Radio Shack it is a nice little butane iron. I like the heat gun attachment for use of heat shrink tubing.
