In this video i'm restoring an old german soldering iron.

This item was sent to me by one of my patrons from Germany. He saw it on eBay, asked me if I'm interested and then he bought it. Thank you for that. I'll send it back to him now.
I really liked the look of the handle and that's why I decided to restore it. It's a propane gas powered soldering iron made by Perkeo. I don't know how old this one is, but they built them since 1919 until today. The modern ones still look pretty much the same as the one I restored in this video, they just made some small changes over the years. I'm very happy how this project turned out, I really like the contrast of the dark wooden handle and the polished brass.

I hope you like my work and the video.

Huge thank you to all of my Patreon and PayPal supporters and specially to:
