Details

Durable • Reliable • Great price!
The best economy-priced iron we've found for guitar and amp soldering jobs.

It heats to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C), and at 40 watts, is a step above short-lived 15-30 watt megamart irons.

Features include:

  • Affordable price, exceptional quality
  • Durable stainless steel shank sleeve
  • Comfortable cushioned grip
  • Long-life non-corrosive 1/32" fine-point tip
  • 4-1/2 foot cord

We recommend:
  • Order a chisel tip for soldering connections to the back of a control pot or grounding a wire to a tremolo claw. It's also handy for steaming out wood dents with a damp cloth.
  • The adjustable Soldering Stand is a must-have for convenience and safety.
  • Use #0505 standard 60/40 rosin core solder with this iron. Lead-free solder is not recommended due to its high melting point (above 420¦F).


#0502 is a 110-volt AC electrical appliance, 60Hz. It has a U.S. standard Type A plug with two flat parallel prongs, ungrounded.

#0602 is a 220-volt AC electrical appliance, 50Hz. It has an international plug Type C (Europlug) with two round prongs, ungrounded.

good

this is a good item. Right size etc. My only complaint is not having a on/off switch about a foot down the cord from the iron. After my 1st use, I cut the cord & wired a switch in place. Much better now.

I waited a long time for this iron to come off Stewmac backorder (it was available from other sources but I like to stick with Stewmac) and it was worth the wait. I ordered the holder/stand for it too and it's a better iron, in my opinion, than the Big Box units that I've been using in the past.
