Anyone know what the cylinder at the top of the iron holder is for? I just bought this iron. I love it, but I can not determine any use for this "towel rack"

I know this is not evident in the picture, but the cylinder is resting in two semi circles. It is not enclosed by anything on the ends. SO if like pinky was saying it were to hold the iron down if ti were handle heavy, the the iron would just lift the cylinder out of its rests. Any other ideas?

Erock-I dont know if you have a frys nearby, but here in Texas they sell them individualy. Couldn't quote a price however. Heres a link to their online partner.

seems like $40 for just the iron part of it is pricey. especially since you can get the whole thing 936 for like $70


Maybe replacing my tip will get me by again. Cause I know mine does't work as well as it once did. I have replaced the tip once already. I think the unit is about 3 years old maybe 4. And I leave it on high temp the entire day about 12 hours at the track.

It is for a roll of solder you just have to be carefull unlike myself, as I use this one at home adn my Hakko is in my pit box. Yesterday infact I put the iron in wrong and it melted a good amount of solder before I caught it....LOL granted it was a huge roll of solder...If I were using say a Radio shack smaller roll. There woudl less of a chance of melting...Heat rising shoudl not melt the solder....

-Shookie <><
By the way the iron is just as good as the Hakko you just have to wait a tiny bit longer when you first turn it on for it to get up temp....I wish I had seen this one before buying my Hakko...

I know Hakko makes new ceramic elements.
Heres one site. Scroll down half way and look for part # HAKA1321P

What can a Hakko iron give me that my Home Depot 50watt $20 iron can't? I've had good luck building packs and hardwiring with my iron, just wondering if there's something I'm missing out on.

I got the circuit specialists look a like because I can adjust the temp, the cord doesn't wind around on my and get in the way, it has a sturdy base that doesn't heat teh handle up, and because I know I can get the tips I need for a long time to come. ANd you look factory with a station. As if that mattered.

So that's basically the whole point of having a Hakko style iron?

I guess I look newbie, but if there's no useful difference, then that's okay with me.
