This Variable Temperature Soldering Station from the Maker Shed preforms much better than its price implies. It’s absolutely the best iron we have found for less than $20, plus it’s high quality so it won’t burn your house down! The iron features interchangeable tips (available separately) and a comfortable rubber grip. The station features a stand with Bakelite ring, cleaning sponge, heat adjustment, and an indicator light. It’s perfect for beginner, intermediate, and even advanced solderers that need a backup. I’ve logged dozens of hours with mine and honestly, you won’t be disappointed. For this price, you can’t go wrong!

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
