    These classic "Red" soldering irons are on sale at HD for $5

    The tips are replaceable, and are made of copper so it's easy to shape them into what you need for the job.

    It won't replace your serious Metcal or Hakko stations, but if you accidentally leave it behind at a job, or use it to melt plastic, you won't care.

    And free shipping too. That will be great as a travel iron.

    The tips are probably as much as the iron was on sale.

    Just use a piece of 6 gauge solid copper wire and tin it.

    File and sand to fit your needs.

    These seem to be impossible
    To fucking find.

    If you do please post!

    I seriously think that everyone just uses copper wire as their replacement tips.

    Just a scrap from HD or any electrician will last you a lifetime

    It looks like a Weller MT1 tip, available at Amazon. That one is held in by a screw and the MT1 is threaded, but they look the same size. MT1 fits a few lower watt Weller irons.
