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.

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.

FYI: What Tip Should You Buy?

We get quite a few customers that ask us “What tip can I buy for my soldering iron?”  The answer is easy!  First, are you looking for tips for a cordless soldering iron or a butane iron? If you have a butane iron (#7971, #7974, #7977)  you can use any of the Pro tips listed.  If you are using our cordless soldering irons (#7700, #7800, #7904) you can use any tips from the high efficiency, long life, and/or standard families.  We thought we’d make it easy, make them universal… made sense.  There are 14 different styles of tips, and if you’ve never looked check them out.  They’re interesting.

Still not sure?  Just visit our shop, find your iron, and within the product description you will see which tips match your iron.  It really is that easy!
