HeatStick + Soldering Iron Neck Removal Set

About This Item

Removing a neck in a busy shop? Use the HeatStick Set
This HeatStick Set has everything you need to remove a neck without steam. Get the set and be ready for the job!

In our shops, our soldering stations and irons are always in use. That's why we've made sets with the HeatStick and a soldering iron so you'll have a dedicated neck removal set.

The HeatStick + Soldering Iron Neck Removal Set includes:

HeatStick Also sold separately
The revolutionary HeatStick softens glue without blushing delicate finishes or loosening the neck block or braces like steam can. It's easy to control, and can be used for acoustic and electric guitars and mandolins. The HeatStick is 6" of solid copper and includes two bits for drilling the pilot and access holes through the fretboard.

Solomon SR-965 Soldering Iron Also sold separately
The HeatStick fits into this iron just like a replacement soldering tip. The iron heats up to 400 degrees fast and is extremely consistent. The handle is comfortable and the smaller sizes makes it easy to maneuver during this tricky job.

It's also our favorite soldering iron! The stainless steel shank is a step above other soldering irons, and the cushioned grip makes it easy to get the right amount of heat exactly where you need it.

#2248 is a 110-volt AC electrical appliance, 60Hz. It has a U.S. standard Type A plug with two flat parallel prongs, ungrounded.

#2249 is a 220-volt AC electrical appliance, 50Hz. It has an international plug Type C (Europlug) with two round prongs, ungrounded.

Simple and effective

By

Verified Buyer


I recently acquired the heat stick and it operated as described.
It could only get better by doubling up with one on either side of the dovetail so I'm purchasing another one

Relaxing neck removal.

By


I bought the Solomon iron because of the reviews saying this would melt my Weller. This method is amazing...I've done 3 guitars with this and it takes the sweat out of removal. Leaves a slightly bigger hole, but one can chip up a "trap door" from the fret slot and carefully do the work under it, then glue the flap back down for an invisible repair.

Worked Great on Epiphone neck with dowels!

By

Verified Buyer


Didn't know the Epiphone had dowels in the neck. (40 yr old guitar). So I had trouble trying to lift the neck out. Once I pulled on the neck it came right out! No finish damage, However, this had nothing to do with the HeatStick, but removing the fretboard from the body with iron heat caused the two inlays over the body to melt and discolor! :( Love the heatstick!! Much better than steam mess!

great for usual neck joints

By

Verified Buyer


After reading other reviews I bought the version with the Iron to avoid the risk of damage to my Weller solder station. I'll just designated this iron for neck removal.The first time I used this was on a Hagstrom acoustic and the dovetail was just 11m deep with no gap under the 15th fret. So I let the heat radiate for a while in two places and it came off eventually and without any damage. In the past I had to remove some unusually designed necks including a Yamaha with a dowel joint, so I think this tool is excellent for any situation where the structure of the joint is unclear. It would be a nice touch if Stewmac offered a corresponding plug-cutter to plug the hole.

works like a charm!

No blushing of the finish and only a little patience and the smallest patchwork on the fingerboard. Hardly visible on a ebony fretboard anyways...

It works like they say.

By

Verified Buyer


Used this one time so far on an old Gibson L00. I didn't want to use the usual steam method because the finish was pretty fragile. It worked very well. My only negative is that I wish the drill was a bit smaller. The hole under the fret is a bit larger than I would like. I filled it with some dust and super glue but it is visible.
