Chassis and motor builders, here at last a new tool made for precision building. This soldering iron comes with 3 precision tips that allow you to get into those realliy tight areas, like the bottom of the Parma 501/502 leadwire connector tabs. The three tips shown in the photos are included as is the "hot iron" stand. The iron itself has two tension adjustment screws to ensure a firm and even grip on the tip for a more sure heat engagement.
As with any soldering iron, the tip must me kept clean and clear of black soot deposits that cause those cold joints and destroy the soldering iron tips. Keep it clean, silvery and tinned with solder and it will last a long time. I use mine only for the in close and personal work when precise amounts of solder are desired in those hard to reach places. You can use it to build the entire chassis but the big Irons are better suited for that task. The soldering tips consist of two coned shaped rod type construction for access to the really tight spots and a small chisel shaped one, about half the size of the one most commonly found on the 50 watt Weller for bigger jobs. I use a fine, thin diameter jewelers solder with mine but this will work with the common 60/40 rosin core too.
Rheostat type heat regulators are recommended for this and any soldering iron. A maintenance sheet is included with this unit, please follow the recommendations as described
