Make connections that last! Stahl Tools SSVT variable temperature soldering station provides the adjustability demanded by professionals, at a price that enables anyone to solder better. Total control over a soldering iron's heat to ensure perfect electronic terminations every time, no matter the job's size. Many different soldering tasks are accomplished easily by using the SSVT's adjustable 5 to 40 watt (150DegreeC to 450DegreeC temperature) adjustment. The lightweight pencil design features a fatigue-reducing rubber grip, and a Bakelite-ringed holder keeps the iron at the ready. A field replaceable, precision ground, iron-plated solid copper tip provides maximum heat transfer, minimizing cold solder joints. Includes 1.5 mm conical soldering tip and cleaning sponge. Additional tips available for a variety of soldering applications. Tip replacement/cleaning should be done only when the iron is at room temperature. The tip can be changed/replaced simply by unscrewing the knurled nut from the barrel assembly. The station must be switched off and allowed to cool before and during this operation, as damage may result if the system is left on without the tip installed. After removing the tip, blow out any oxide dust that may have formed in the tip retaining area of the barrel. Avoid getting debris in your eyes. Replace the tip and screw the retaining knurled nut onto the barrel assembly; tighten only finger-tight. To avoid burning your fingers, pliers should only be used to tighten the nut if it becomes loose when the iron is hot. Care should be taken not to overtighten, as this can damage the element. The iron should be placed in its stand when not in use. If the supply cord becomes damaged, it must be replaced by a qualified service technician. The outer case of the iron or station may be cleaned with a damp cloth using a small amount of liquid detergent. Never submerse the unit in liquid or allow any liquid to enter the case of the station.

I've found that the screw-on tip loosens periodically, maybe after several hours of on-time. Keep a pair of pliers within reach!
I bought this soldering station to replace an 18 watt mini-iron. My choice was between this one and a similar one from a "Well" known American maker. Since I don't use one very heavily, I went for the less expensive iron.
- Mine did not have the smoking-handle issue that a few reviewers reported.
- Based on another review I was prepared to glue the iron holder into the base if necessary but so far mine is secure.
- My previous experience with iron holders was those with simple coiled wires. This one also has a "can" within the coil which probably keeps the coil cooler but it rattles like an old pickup truck when you put the iron in. OK, that's really minor but it just doesn't "ring" like every other soldering station everywhere has always done.
-The setting I find best on this iron is rather higher (eyeball) than I would have expected from a 40-watt iron replacing an 18-watt one but it works well, it isn't maxed out (maybe ~70%), and the control probably isn't linear anyway.
- Mine was supplied with a 1 mm conical tip, not the 1.5 mm one described. That's a plus, as the flat tip on the mini-iron was one big (heh) reason for replacing it.
- The other reason was that I've snagged the mini-iron's cord with my knee and pulled it off the bench. o-:) This iron is wired into the station's base, not to the plug, and the whole station assembly isn't quite so light and easy to pull down.
- The handle has been comfortably warm but is rather larger and longer than the mini-iron so at first it felt kind of awkward, like trying to sew with a screwdriver.
- A second advantage of the station over the mini-iron is that I can both turn the temperature down and switch off the station giving me two visible clues that it's off. Before, I had to reach under the desk to unplug the iron and bring the plug out where I could see it.
I was prepared to exchange this station for the better known brand if it didn't work out but I'm happy with it.
I agree it does take a lot longer to heat up than a Metcal, Edsyn, or a Weller Professional station, but I am using this at home on my hobby projects. I am in no hurry for it to heat up. Another reason it takes a long time to heat is these tips are IRON! What part of thick, heavy metal do you not understand?!! The station is for hobbyists and beginners, not for professional work. The temperature is stable and constant. It did take some trial and error to find the right settings for my tasks.
I also got away from using No-Lead solder fast. I could see the tips were anodizing too fast and the temps were too high for soldering simple circuits.
Overall, I do love my purchase and hope others will make the same conclusion after buying this station. Please, do yourselves a favor and buy the tip set that in the Other who bought this purchased section on the product description.
Like many tools, the phrase "you get what you pay for" applies well here.
I will be purchasing a Weller or other to replace this, don't waste your money like I did.
I had read the reviews previously and knew I was taking a risk purchasing this item, so i'm not very disappointed. I would however advise against the purchase of this despite it's allure; it seems like there's a good chance it simply will not work right out of the box. The only reason I'm not returning it is because of a previous reviewers recommendations on how to fix it. I will be attempting those eventually, if that's the only problem, then it might be worth the price.
