Soldering Iron Collection
My collection of antique Soldering Irons,
vintage Soldering Guns, and Soldering Tools.

Flame Heated Soldering Irons
Electric Soldering Irons
Flame Heated Soldering Irons
Soldering irons have been around for over 4,000 years. Up until the early 1900s they were mostly heated by flame. There was no control of the temperature. Check out some of the flame heated irons in my collection.
Electric Soldering Irons
An electric soldering iron is typically on whenever it's plugged in. They usually take a few minutes to heat up and generally stay at a steady temperature. Here's a few I've collected including some "Self-Feeding" soldering irons.
Soldering Guns

Soldering Guns
The Soldering Gun was invented by Carl E. Weller in 1941. Soldering guns heat quickly when a trigger switch is pulled and cool rapidly when put down. Check some out here including Carl Weller's first "Speedy Irons".
Soldering Stations
This group includes corded soldering irons that have a separate power supply, transformer, temperature control, or irons that plug into any type of base.
