Model # 3158X-250

250 Watt, 5/8" Heavy-Duty Soldering Iron


The iron I received is so beautiful that I didn't want to plug it in and tarnish it! I did however and used it to solder 10 and 4AWG wire already. The new lipo rc charge station at the club field is now functional. Next will be the addition of solar support as donations come in. More 4-6AWG soldering! I passed the iron around before powering it up. The electric plane modelers with their small irons were impressed! They haven't seen anything this big or shinny in a soldering iron before!

The cleaning kit was a surprise and I've already watched your videos on how to use it to keep the iron in great shape for years to come.We all thank you and your company so much.
