Description: This is a very simple fixed temp, quick heating, 40W 110/120 VAC soldering iron - benevolently known as 'fire starter'. Because the iron is so simple (no stand, no variable temp, no nothing), we call it 'fire starter' - it sort of feels like we are plugging an extension cord into the wall with a nail on the end.
We really enjoy using the more expensive irons, but if you really need a cheap iron for your tool box, this lovely iron works great. This is a low-cost iron. It works! But it doesn't come with a stand. We recommend you checkout the iron stands below.
The soldering iron is connected to a standard North American type A plug. Pointed soldering tip is included and is replaceable. Perfect for soldering our through-hole kits.
