Product Description

Makes Old Soldering Iron Tips Like New!

Sal Ammoniac, also called a tinning block, quickly cleans any carbon build-up that collects on the tip of a soldering iron. Simply rub the tip of a hot iron against the block and in seconds, the tip is clean, bright and hot. The 1/2 pound block lasts a long time.

For best results and longer lasting soldering iron tips, use the tinning block occasionally to re-tin the surface of your tip. A moist soldering iron sponge, such as item #5009, is ideal for routine maintenance while soldering to keep the tip clean.

  •   happy I bought this block

Pros : After a long break from the glass craft, I was disappointed to see corrosion on the tip of my expensive soldering iron! I followed the tinning steps and was relieved to have revived the tip, so that I'm able to solder stained glass again!!

  •   Saved my iron!
By on
Pros : Convenient and easy to use
Cons :
Other Thoughts : I bought this as a last resort in an attempt to save an old iron tip that was very dirty and not holding temperature well anymore. I had already tried all the other methods of cleaning the tip (brass brush, etc.) to no avail, and this product brought it back from the dead! The tip is now clean and shiny and working great. Definitely worth the money.
