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 what 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 iron 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. Pliers should only be used to tighten the nut if it becomes loose when the iron is hot to, avoid burning your fingers. Care should be taken not to over tighten 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 must 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 5 out of 5 by from Get the SSVT and be done with it.No more fighting lesser pencil irons. It's solid, heats up fast, and gets way hotter than my lower wattage pencils. Desolders the sloppiest blobs like a soldering iron through butter. I also like the shroud in the stand, you can't really see it in the pics but it holds the iron sturdily unlike other stands I have. The knob is smooth too, it's a pretty good knob. I could use this tool to make other tools, which is a level of function that I like seeing in tools. All in all, if you don't have a soldering station, get one. You will be pleased that you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a toy for the price! Great value!!!!I do a ton of soldering for my Luthier business & Recording studio [Roxy Musik Inc.] building and repairing both electric and acoustic guitars and needed another utility iron. I was surprised at the accuracy and performance of this station... would tell you, get them while they last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stahl Soldering StationCan't beat it. Gets hot enough to solder connectors onto batteries. Bought it for my RC hobby. Parts Express always ships their products fast, clean and well packaged. Also picked up the variety pack of tips, small tube of solder along with the helping hands with led magnifying glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price - this iron can't be bestedThis is the iron I use on my repair bench. It heats quick, maintains temperature, and melts solder reliably. I do mostly repairs of amplifiers, and this fits my needs perfectly. I also teach classes on how-to solder, and this is the unit I use with middle and high school students. It stands up to their (ab)use, and I've never had one fail (unlike a certain competitor that costs much more). The replaceable tips are great, and cheap.

Where would I set the dial for 650 F temperature?

Asked by: tdoakes
Turn the dial all the way up. Although the description says that it will get much higher, it only reaches about 640 degrees Fahrenheit. I know this because I needed 700 degrees F, but the iron would not quite reach.

Where can I find a replacement heating element?

I'm with [auraslip] on the delicate heating element. I removed the tip to clean it, and it failed to function thereafter. Where can I find a new element? Is it worth buying replacement parts, or should I simply get a new station?
Asked by: Collin
Your soldering iron is under warranty for one year from the date of purchase. Please contact Technical Support at tech@parts-express.com.I did run into a similar issue when using this iron for a product demonstration when removing the tip. What I found is that I had to loosen the collar just a bit for the tip to become fully seated against the heating element before tightening the collar to hold the tip.

Does the iron cord have a standard AC plug that plugs into the station?

Asked by: Michael J.
The pencil cord is hard wired into the station.

Can it be powered with 240v?

Asked by: Brownie
This unit is directly connected to the power line and not isolated with a transformer to step down the voltage or isolate the heating element so 240 would destroy the heating element quickly.

Is this iron grounded?

Asked by: Shnoober
Yes it is.
Answered by: Tony B
Date published: 2012-04-24

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.
