The Hakko FX Bows are an electronic device that offers precise heat control for a wide range of soldering jobs. The best of this brand’s products have been awarded multiple awards, including an Industry Recognition Award from the ASME. The F-901 is the newest generation of thermal soldering irons by Hakko. This small, lightweight iron actually will outperform even the most popular 100W professional solders on the market today. Read on and learn about the advantages of using this iron.
Unlike other soldering tools, the Hakko F-901 soldering iron does not require a replacement chisel tip. This is a large advantage because the iron is small enough to easily grip and use while still being large enough to cover a large surface area. When the iron is used in a flux-cored configuration, the flux core makes the iron small enough to hold the soldering job while allowing the flux to stick to the workpiece. This feature provides the user with a safe and effective method of accomplishing the task.
Another positive feature of the iron is that the flux core is able to hold a larger variety of flux colors. Because flux-cored soldering holds the flux tightly, it is important to purchase a high-quality iron with a consistent flux color. The iron has been designed to hold the appropriate flux colors even under extreme heat and pressure. The long shelf life of the iron allows for the easy replacement of defective parts or if you simply want to upgrade to different tip size.
Many people have asked us about the replacement chisel tip on their Hakko soldering iron. The iron has a standard iron tip which is extremely useful when soldering smaller areas of metal such as nails and screws. The only issue we have seen is that the overall size of the soldering iron does not fit well into the drilled hole in many of our basic pocket knives. This means that users will need to either cut their finger muscles or look for another small enough replacement chisel tip to accomplish the task.
The two most popular brands of Hakko soldering irons are the FX 601 soldering iron and the HDI-9000 soldering iron. The HDI-9000 is an eight hundred pound forged iron, which is one of the largest forged iron tips available on the market. While it is heavy, it has the ability to stand up to much heavier loads than many other irons.
The FX-601 soldering iron is one quart-sized soldering iron that offers a high-quality performance compared to other types on the market. This soldering iron tip is larger than the Hakko soldering iron but not as big as the FX-BXB soldering iron. The FX-CORE soldering iron is a dual-handed flux-cored flux tip with the ceramic heating element. It is also very heavy. Like the FX-601 it requires an optional nickel plating for added durability.
Both the FX-601 and FX-BXB sellering iron tips can handle a wide range of soldering jobs including soldering aluminum and copper. The only thing to keep in mind when using these soldering iron tips is proper heat protection. You do not want to use the soldering iron tip on any solder that contains lead as it can cause severe damage to the solder. The best way to protect your solder is by using an extra stick to place over the solder before you start heating the solder up. Please note that when using an extra stick, it is always wise to use heat shrink tubing to wrap the excess material back onto the stick so you do not have to repeatedly heat the solder. When soldering copper, use a small soldering iron tip because this is a harder metal than brass which can burn your fingers.
The third type of Hakko soldering iron tip is the HAKKO wire-Wound Heating Elements. Unlike the other two types, this type of soldering iron tip uses ceramic heat shrink tubing to protect the solder and the weld when welding wire. When using this type of tip, always make sure that the soldering iron tip is clean before applying the wire-wound heating elements. When soldering aluminum, copper, or brass, always double-check the wire-wound heating elements to confirm that they are working properly. If they are not, replace them immediately.
