HEXACON HEAVY DUTY SERIES IRONS are the most rugged heavy duty irons available for continuous studio soldering. These irons feature a near indestructible outer element case made from a single piece of high strength nickel plated alloy steel. Each iron has a triple ringed heat interrupter/deflector to keep the handle cool and comfortable and make the shaft shorter, allowing for a more well-balanced tool. Also unique to these irons is the energy-absorbing nut which securely holds the tip in place. This nut also cushions the element from jolts when the iron is dropped into its holder, prolonging the life of the iron and element. All of the HEAVY DUTY SERIES of irons are equipped with long lasting iron-clad Xtradur tips and independently replaceable tip, element, cord and handles.

Use 150 and 175 watt irons for most soldering tasks such as came work or copper foil work.  Use the 200 watt and larger irons for working on wider lead or zinc cames or for attaching rebar.
