Iso-Tip, there’s a lot in our name. For more than 40 years we’ve been building the 7000 series soldering irons and the PRO’s tell us they stand apart from the rest.

Our Isolated Tip design gives high temps fast at the push of a button, anyplace. You might just find yourself done with the job while other irons are still heating up. By isolating the tip we prevent electrical leakage that may cause component damage while soldering. Most soldering irons offer only a few tip choices, over the years we have developed more than 20 tips to meet your soldering needs. Our High efficiency tips give you a quicker heat-up time and use less battery life. The Long Life tips are Nickel plated and designed for more continual use and will meet all of your tougher tasks. Our long list of standard tips will work well for your general soldering needs. For over 40 years professionals have looked to us for advancements in portable soldering and we have enjoyed meeting that challenge.

If you’ve never tried one of our cordless irons we hope you will. We also supply other “tools worth discovering” for heating, finish work and the tough soldering jobs. If you have a need let us know, we do appreciate input from the people that use our products. Not all soldering irons and especially tips are the same. Let us know what you think, we enjoy what we do and appreciate the people we do it for.

Cordless Soldering Iron Used to Build Field Strength Meter

K7AGE YouTube Channel featured our Model# 7700 cordless soldering iron in his Let’s Build A Field Strength Meter video. He used our soldering iron to assist in building a field strength meter in a digital volt meter.  K7AGE is an amateur radio operator who produces YouTube videos and we did a pay-it-forward for his great channel.  Check out some of his other videos to learn more about HAM radios.

Thanks for the great review K7AGE!

Northeast High School Aerospace, Medical, and Engineering Magnet Program

Iso-Tip is now supporting Philadelphia’s Northeast High School Aerospace, Medical, and Engineering Magnet Program.  Here is a little info about this notable organization…

“Students come from all over Philadelphia to the Northeast High School Aerospace, Medical, and Engineering Magnet Program. Over 600 students are currently enrolled in this program and it has seen many notable alumni from astronauts to athletes.  These students expect an education to help motivate and drive them to their goals in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) related areas. One of the academic clubs within the school has been promoting STEM since 1960, Project SPARC. This club allows students to follow their passion through six sub-groups that make up Project SPARC: flight management, medical, engineering, computers, administration, and robotics. Our robotics group has competed in multiple competitions over the years and now focuses solely on two: MATE ROV Challenge and First Tech Challenge. We have over 40 students in our team the “Northeast Robotics Development Specialist” (NERDS).  We have won over 15 awards from state and regional level competitions over the last three years. And for the first time last year our team had qualified for the International Mate Competition in which we will be competing with teams from all over the world.” – NERDS Program Advisor

Replacement Parts for Older Soldering Irons

We receive a number of questions from our customers about the older irons dated back to 1970.  The good news is we do rebuild those and offer an exchange program if a replacement part isn’t available or the iron is beyond rebuilding.  You can send your soldering iron into us and we will bring the iron up to date by replacing the battery, bulb, wires, transformer, etc. With a small fee of $24.95 +shipping, we recommend this for a handful of the irons especially the #7800 models.  Give us a call at 715-831-6353, we will provide you with an RMA number to include with your package.  Please ship the iron to 704 Bartlett Avenue, Altoona, WI 54720.

Another option is to purchase the replacement parts and rebuild it yourself. The nice thing about most all of our iron owners is that they know what they are doing inside electronics.

We’re all about color coordination at Iso-Tip…

The orange 7700 model iron can be replaced with any of our current grey #7700 model parts, including the #7733 battery & #7728-100 charging base.

For the #7500 Iso-Tip SI model iron, you can also use any of the products associated with the #7700 model.

If you still have the screw base bulb in your iron we have a limited supply of those. If you would like to update to the bayonet style we have the parts for that also, and yes we have looked at the LED options.
If you have any questions or need further information, give us a call.
