This is a basic soldering pencil for occasional use. It lacks the insulation of our better irons so its not as comfortable during long soldering sessions. Includes light weight, flip-up soldering stand.
Replacement Conical Tip for Standard Soldering Iron. Catalog number: 15222. Brand: Tinkering Supplies. Brand's Part Number: H01522-01F.
This is a reasonable quality soldering pencil for general use. It featues a comfortable rubber sleeve and replaceable long-life conical tip. It does not include a stand, we suggest
Soldering Iron Stand. At 40w this iron puts out enough heat to solder ground leads to chassis parts or perform other heady duty chores -- that also means that you need to work fast for delicate electronic soldering. This is the same iron provided with
40w Variable Temperature Soldering Station where the voltage control lets you turn down the heat for delicate work. Catalog number: 16568. Brand: Tinkering Supplies. Brand's Part Number: H01656-01B.
This is a good quality soldering iron and a very sturdy stand that includes a variable voltage power supply. The iron accepts replacement tips. This station does not have a closed loop temerature control system to dial in precise temperatures, but it does a good job of helping you match the tip temperature to the job at hand for hobby and general service soldering. I have used these irons in my electronics classes and on one of my own workbenches with very good results. Catalog number: 11148. Brand: Elenco Electronics. Brand's Part Number: SL5-40.
