Solomon SR-137 Turbo Heat Soldering Iron

About This Item

A dual wattage soldering iron with a high efficiency ceramic heater. This durable iron features a turbo button that toggles between 15 and 120 watts.

Heats up quickly, cools down fast
15 watts is usually sufficient for most guitar and amp wiring jobs, but sometimes it's nice to have a turbo boost. Press and hold the button for 10 seconds and the iron reaches its maximum temperature of 842°F (450°C). This is really handy when grounding to a tremolo claw or the back of a control pot. The turbo boost lasts while the button is pushed and should only be used in 10-20 second intervals.

    Features include:
  • Durable stainless steel shank sleeve
  • Turbo boost for when extra heat is needed
  • Long-life non-corrosive 1/32" fine-point tip
  • 5-1/2 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.

#0507 is a 110-volt AC electrical appliance, 60Hz. It has a U.S. standard Type A plug with two flat parallel prongs and one round pin, grounded.

#0607 is a 220-volt AC electrical appliance, 50Hz. It has an international plug Type F (Europlug) with two round prongs, grounded.

Best mid range solder gun I've used so far and the turbo makes it even better and the tips make it easier to apply

Fabulous, versatile iron !  You won't be disappointed !

A very ergonomically designed soldering "pencil"; easy to grip and well insulated from excess heat getting to your hand (a flaw in my previous iron). I love the tip, and bought extra tip shapes for various applications. The "turbo" heat button is why I bought this; I like the idea of apply additional instant heat for short periods, particularly when de-soldering old joints, tube sockets, etc. Just always take care to heat-sink sensitive components as this iron gets very hot in turbo mode. Also, it has a nice long cord and is double insulated. Great design, and a very fair price considering the quality.

okay!

The handle on this guy gets slightly hot, not uncomfortable I guess. I have only used it once to change out a set of pickups and it worked fine!

I needed a new soldering iron and thought I would try one. After prepping the iron I proceeded to install new electronics in my guitar . This Soloman SR-137 worked great and had the wattage needed to do the job .

Buy it!!

I recently purchased the SR-137 Turbo Heat Soldering Iron and I'm very happy with my decision. I am always hesitant to buy online without some sort of local personal knowledge of a product but based on StewMac's reputation for quality I took a chance. I don't do a lot of soldering but as the owner of "too many guitars" I periodically need to repair cables or change out a pickup. This worked very well for me and I especially like the Turbo feature. It's amazing how much easier a job is with the right tool! My only regret is I waited so long to make this purchase and struggled with my inferior iron!

Decent for the money for limited use

I purchased this as a replacement for a pro level Weller soldering station and was looking for a temporary cheaper solution to quickly finish up a project. 3 things that set this apart from a real pro level soldering station.

1. The handle gets pretty warm, almost hot to the touch.
2. The cable is pretty unwieldy and is a bit of a pain compared to a real soldering station. I found it it could be difficult to keep it out of the way.
3.It's pretty easy to hit the "turbo" setting unintentionally.

For ergonomics this get's a "D".

My bad for not coughing up cash for the real deal.I will keep this in my traveling tool bag for emergency repairs, but if you are going to be doing and serious soldering on PC boards especially, go for the real thing. I'll repair or replace the Weller Soldering station for my bench.

Cheers,

Great for small jobs

A good iron for small jobs but if you solder a lot you will want a more robust unit.

Great but not enough power for a novice?

Everything seems promising about this iron and the power boost option. But as someone new to soldering, I couldn't get it to work with lead-free, silver solder (0.04" dia.). I couldn't tin parts nor remove old solder. I could only get the solder to melt on direct contact with the iron tip. So I ended up buying and using a 40 watt iron for my guitar rewiring project. Maybe I'll be able to use the SR137 as I get more experienced. Or I'll use it for finer jobs like a pedal pcb. That's my fault. But I give the product 3 stars because the description (in the print catalog) should have contained better caveats for customers like me. None of this will deter me from buying from StewMac in the future.
