Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this style of solder tip but have a look at our soldering tools category anyway, you may find something you like! This page is for reference only.

Description: Shiny new tips for all your lead-free soldering needs. Each tip comes with a built-in ceramic heater element. This is the LF-3BC model and is great for larger soldering jobs like DB-9 connectors, SMA antenna jacks, etc.

This tip is compatible with our 70W Analog and Digital soldering stations.

  • Yep, fixed.

    • RobertC,
      The plot thickens! :o{
      My original comment and, I suspect, your response were based on the appearances of the tips and our general knowledge of what “chisel” and “bevel” tips are. If you look at the websites for other soldering equipment suppliers, such as Weller, you find the descriptions of tips consistent with that general knowledge.
      However, if you look at the Aoyue site
      <http://www.aoyue.com/down/soldering%20iron%20tips%20with%20heating%20element.jpg>
      you’ll see that the drawing shows what I would call “chisel” tips labelled as “bevel” (including the LF-3BC), and vice versa (including the LF-12D). Therefore, the pictures, as originally posted on this site, appear consistent with the Aoyue designations, but not with the generally understood meanings of the terms. Unfortunately, SparkFun appears to have a dilemma: Use Aoyue’s descriptions, confusing some website users and possibly resulting in people ordering the tip with the name they want, but not the shape they want; or use descriptions consistent with general understanding of the terms and other manufacturers, but not with Aoyue’s designations.
      If nothing else, please take a look at what you have in stock and let us know what’s what.
      TIA,
      Eric

      • The problem is fixed. Check out the model number, it matches the packaging, and the profiles on their site. What you see in the pictures is what you will get.

  • The photographs for the new “bevel” and “chisel” tips seem to have been swapped. That is, the photos attached to the “bevel” catalog page appear to be for the “chisel” tip, and vice versa.
