Product Details

Stahl Tools SSVT Variable Temperature Soldering Station

Make connections that last! A Stahl Tools SSVT variable temperature soldering station provides the adjustability demanded by professionals, but offers it at a price that enables anyone to solder better. Total control over a soldering iron's heat is one sure way of making 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 (150°C to 450°C 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. Stahl Tools—The Technician's Friend™.

Tip Replacement and Dressing:

Tip replacement or cleaning should be done only when the iron is at room temperature. The tip can be changed or 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. Be careful to 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.

General Cleaning:

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. Never use solvent to clean the case.


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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works wellI like the small compact design, it keeps an even temperature and the wight on the iron isn't too heavy to hold either.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from SSVT Variable Temp solder stationUnit works fine but the cable from the base to the soldering wand is the same as the power cord. Stiff, hard to bend and will not coil. This makes the unit really not usable. I would not purchase this again.

About what temperature do each of the colors equate to?

Asked by: Matt15
Bottom of yellow is150°C and top of red is 450°C so you have to use your judgment that the middle color will be 300 C, but I would check to make certain.

Does this soldering station have an iron where the tip is removeable? Also, at the current price does it come with any extra/replacement tips? If yes, how many and what kind (conical, screwdriver, etc)? If not what is the part# to order such tips? 

Asked by: Dimi Pana
Yes this iron does have replaceable tips but they are only available separately. You can see them in the link below.http://www.parts-express.com/stahl-tools-ssrt-4-piece-soldering-tip-kit-for-stssvt--374-102

Powered on the iron for the first time and first thing I notice is smoke coming out of handle. Does this mean that the heating element got pushed back or that something more important is messed up?

Asked by: pigeonman
It is not uncommon for the handle to produce a little smoke on a new iron. This should dissipate after the first couple of uses.

Iron is getting hot but the tip is not. I have waited upwards of fifteen minutes and nothing has happened. I have take the tip out and I am wondering if I have to grind the coating down more to get a better connection?

Asked by: Griswald_II
The tip does not need to be modified for better heat transfer. If the tip is not melting solder even at the highest temperature setting, please contact our customer service and we will see about an exchange on the item.
