Thanx for the replies.
It seems that my experience is echoing that of Cary's. The solder does 
not seem to make it all the way through the nozzle before it solidifies. 
The only way I could explain this is that the heating element just does 
not hold temp.

The company I purchased from is telling me that i need to let the 2702 
heat up for 20 minutes before use! That's  funny.
