Designed with the hobbyist and the do-it-yourself enthusiast in mind, this kit features a high-quality, lightweight pencil iron with variable power control, a cushioned foam grip with a replaceable heating element, and a safety guard iron holder. And it's from Weller, the world leader in soldering since 1945.

At the heart of the WLC100 Soldering Station is a high-quality lightweight pencil iron with an iron-plated copper tip. The tip is constructed of solid copper and plated with iron, as well as nickel and chromium to protect against corrosion and solder creep. The iron has a cushioned foam grip that sits comfortably in your hand as you work.


The WLC100 features a variable power control that lets you adjust the power level from five to 40 watts with a simple turn of the knob on the base unit. The base also includes a "power-on" indicator light and on/off switch to help keep you from leaving a hot iron on accidentally.

This soldering station is UL-listed, which means it has been tested and meets independent safety standards. It is backed by a one year warranty against manufacturer's defects in material and workmanship.
