This is a 230 volt model of our base repair iron, designed for use in countries using 230 volt current, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, etc. for our 120 volt version (North America, etc.) click here.
- Our base repair iron is a good choice for home tuners who have previously used drip candles to fill base gouges.
- It works with with p-tex repair ribbon, p-tex string or metalgrip so you can melt-in repairs that are more durable and cosmetically cleaner than drip candle repairs.
- The tool features a wooden handle and a ceramic heating element that heats-up quickly.
- Unlike soldering irons or woodburning tools that heat to 1000°F (538°C), it hovers around a safer 550°F (288°C) operating temperature.
- The tip can become slightly hotter if left unattended, up to 600°F (315°C) best to unplug if you think it will sit for 5 minutes or more.
- It comes with a narrow 3/16" flat nickel-plated copper tip, which melts and smoothes repair material to make pinpoint repairs without unnecessarily affecting surrounding base material.
- An optional 1/2 inch-widecurved tip for this iron is also available...it works better for melting P-Tex material into especially wide gouges or core shots (simply slide it on after slipping off the standard narrow tip).
- Replacement "standard" tips are available in case the one that came with the tool is damaged or lost.
- The 230v version comes standard with a North American style 2-flat-prong plug (the only way we can get them at this point) you will need to purchase a "plug adaptor" so it'll plug into the socket standard in your country. We offer them here, you can also find them is at an electronic shop or travel store. The iron is adjusted for 230v current so you don't need a current converter, just a plug adaptor.
