Description How To
 

This variable temperature soldering station - 5-40 watt preforms much better than its price implies. Tired of being let down by your inexpensive soldering iron but don't want to spend a lot of money on a professional version? It's absolutely the best iron we have found for $25! The iron includes a replaceable 1.5mm conical soldering tip (additional tip set available here,) and a comfortable rubber grip. The station features a stand with Bakelite ring, cleaning sponge, heat adjustment, and an indicator light that comes on when the iron is hot. It's perfect for beginner, intermediate, and even advanced solderers that need a backup. For this price, you can't go wrong!

  • Cushioned rubber grip

DONT BUY! July 28, 2013
Reviewer: Jack McMillin  
For the love of god, they need to take this off of here, this thing is a big risk to buy, you have a very small chance of it working when you buy it, my 5 dollar soldering iron works better, heats up faster then this junk. even if you try to fix it (which i did from another guy who said how) it doesnt work , again slim chance of it. Its a waste of time, and a waste of money, i stripped mine for the potientometer and the switch and use it as a stand for my old soldering iron. it just sits there giving me a stark reminder of what buying cheap tools can do.        



BUY EXPENSIVE NICE TOOLS, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

Plastic Melts March 8, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ann Arbor, MI United States  
I purchased two of these soldering irons because they are temperature controlled and in my price range.  I own an education company and teach electronics and soldering on a regular basis and I wanted to upgrade to soldering irons that had a more sturdy base and were temperature controlled.  These work well except that the students tend to rest the iron on the plastic base when they are trying to use the sponge to clean off their iron.  Just after two uses, the stand is in pretty rough shape.  I prefer to use metal stands so that I can tap the solder off of the tip when I need to.
I would not recommend purchasing one of these unless you can be very careful with the iron and not melt the sides.

Wish it were a little better. February 15, 2013
Reviewer: Matthew Hamilton from Thornton, CO United States  
It's functional, but the stand doesn't fit the base and so it keeps falling off. That's rather unsafe as at any moment your iron could drop to the workbench and roll away.

You get what you pay for October 17, 2012
Reviewer: CJ from Aurora, CO United States  
This iron takes a very long time to heat up. It needs to be on the highest setting to melt common solder, so I'm not sure what the adjustable heat is good for. Also, the light does not indicate when the iron is hot, as noted in the description; the light just indicates the unit is on.
