Maplins sale!

Wow i went down to maplins today to pick up a component that I needed for the LED contest and i was really impressed with the sale for less than ten quid (£8.97) I got ten metres of solid core wire (ran low), my component, a 25W soldering iron (£2.99!!!) and 100g of lead free solder (also running low) I was going to have to go to bangor to the house there and pick up the soldering iron, train fare is about £6 in all and the iron cost £2.99 what a bargain, especially considering they're alright for smaller stuff, I used almost exact same one in school for years and they handle abuse very well. Soldering iron: £2.99 Solder: £3.60 Horrible burn scars from being too excited about the iron: priceless yes the solder cost more than the iron
