Model # 3158-200

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


I just wanted to express sincere appreciation for the time you dedicated to me this afternoon to review my question related to lead-free solder and your solder irons. It's extremely rare when any manufacturer anywhere takes such an interest in a [very] small customer. It's real old school. And it's always nice to speak with someone in the States, and more, someone who obviously knows his product intimately. I'm used to either gum-cracking teenagers who's only thought is how to get off the line as quickly as possible, or some guy on the other side of the world reading through a badly translated on-line manual for a product he's never touched. That's the way it goes today. :-(

With your help, I was able to select the appropriate solder for my little project and look forward to future creations.

Product Overview
American Beauty heavy-duty irons are ideal for heavy soldering jobs and production-line environments. Created by compression winding a special Ni-Chrome heating alloy onto a steel spool, all elements demonstrate an unsurpassed heat capacity and outstanding durability. Protective casings cut from a single block of steel are strengthened with multiple heat treatments and precision brazed for optimal strength and efficiency. (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.

Hardwood handle provides superior thermal and electrical insulating properties and durability.

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