Model # 3112-40

40 Watt, 1/4" Pencil-Style Soldering Iron


We are a custom LED business and have soldering irons running all day. We tried other irons and for various reasons they didn't prove to be a long-term solution. At our meeting last night I was asked to look around for a more durable soldering iron and that is how I found your site. The items I ordered arrived as promised and 2 solder techs switched over to them right away. Initial response is very positive. Looks like we might have a winner here.

Product Overview
The little guy that really packs a punch! Designed in the same fashion as our heavy-duty soldering irons, these pencil-style irons are certainly not your average hobby iron. Referred to as production-ready, these irons repeatedly perform hard soldering applications, day in and day out. The combination of intense heat and unmatched durability yields a pencil iron that can proudly be called an American Beauty and makes a versatile tool in any maintenance and repair operation. (Stand Included)


Ni-Chrome Compression Wound Heating Elements are proven to be the most reliable heating element for maintaining soldering temperature in production environments.

Paragon Iron-Clad Lead-Free Soldering Iron Tips consistently outperform and outlast ordinary soldering iron tips many times over.

Plug-style tip design provides for superior heat transfer and easy cleaning.

Modular construction allows for easy replacement of consumable parts allowing for tools to last for generations.
