Product overview

• 50W mains powered soldering iron that allows you to start soldering by simply plugging in the iron
• Heats up in 55 seconds to give you a stable and consistent temperature to complete all your soldering tasks
• Temperature ranges from 200°C to 450°C allowing you to store heat in the tip to aid the melting process
• No restrictions on how long you can use this soldering iron as it is mains powered

Special feature
• Analogue temperature dial to set the temperature you need for soldering
• Hot air de-solder facility to melt old solder on a joint or PCB board

What is included in this kit?
This mains powered soldering station has a 50W output and is supplied with a stand to safely store your soldering iron when not in use. This soldering station has a hot air de-solder facility that saves on wear and tear in the iron. The soldering iron is temperature controlled through an analogue dial on the solder station base so you can set it at the perfect temperature for your soldering job. This will allow you to create the perfect solder joints while saving electricity.

What difference does the wattage make?
The wattage of a soldering iron is one of the most important factors when deciding which one to buy. Higher wattage will deliver more power to the iron’s tip, allowing it to heat up quicker. As this is a 50W mains soldering iron, it heats up the tip in under a minute, allowing you to start soldering without having to refill butane tanks or replace batteries.

Do I need anything else for this soldering iron?
The only thing you will require with this soldering station is the solder itself which you can get here

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Unit After purchasing around 3, cheap soldering irons and having them either fail on me or just be generally rubbish I decided to spend some money and get something decent. I ordered this unit from the Huddersfield store, and I have to say I am extremely happy with it. I wanted a temperature controlled iron, as while I'm only a hobbyist, my needs do vary. Problems i've had in the past include having a temperature controlled station and the low temperatures should be hot enough to solder small electrical components, but it just really isn't. This iron heats up very quickly and even at low temperatures I can easily solder small components. Raising the temperature to desolder something is also very easy, there is just and up and down function. You choose what temperature you want the unit to go to and then it switches to tell you what temperature the iron actually is so you can see when it reaches your desired temperature. The tip it comes with is a good all-round general chisel type chip which I prefer to the very pointy precision tips. It's much easier to solder with these types, as they spread the heat over a larger area. Even very fine electronic work can be done with the supplied tip, just have a steady hand. This iron is made and England and as such the tips are very easy to come by! In Maplin stores they sell a variety of Antex tips which are compatible, any of the TC50 tips should be compatible. In the manual with this is actually tells you all the different types of tips available, there's about 10 different types. I chose an Antex one over Weller because they're not crazy expensive, it's very good quality (I don't feel like this will fail any time soon). The tips are very high quality, they don't seem to oxide quickly like other tips I have had. Very easy to keep well maintained! I've given it some serious use and it's still looking pretty much brand new and performs as such. Now the hot air gun, I didn't have much use for this only ever for heat shrink really. In the past i've used a 2000W Heat Gun or a butane lighter. Now I didn't actually realise how low of a temperature you can actually heat up to seal the heat shrink but the hot air gun does an excellent job. In the past using lighters i've sometimes damaged or burnt nearby cables, but with the air gun on here with a very fine nozzle and a low temperature of 150C will easily seal heat shrink and not damage any other component! Overall this is a fantastic bit of kit and it really is worth getting a soldering iron that will last. Brands like Weller or Hakko are great if you live in the US but they're just too expensive over here and it's really hard to get the tips. Antex are a UK company and this is a quality unit which I feel will last me a very long time! 10/10

Hi there, I have a question. Does the rework station has the stand for the nozzles? Normally Rework station comes with a stand to place the nozzle when its hot. Do this station come with that ?
