New in the Maker Shed: Variable Temperature Soldering Station

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!


  • On/off switch with “power-on” indicator light.
  • Variable 302°F to 842°F heat setting
  • Cushioned rubber grip

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.
