AIRCRAFT FABRIC SEALING IRON 110V
I just ordered a second iron for the lab, because we both like it so much and dont want to share. Its the best iron available. The temperature control is accurate and stable and the automatic off when not used is a very good safety feature. Lars W
Great iron. Haven’t used it yet but looks good and feels good. Fast shipping
Purchased because of the digital temperature readout. Very happy so far.
My previous irons have had problems, broke, needed calibration and testing, and just plain wore out. I bought this for the strong connection between handle and shoe, the digital temperature control and the wattage. I am very happy with it! It comes up to temperature quickly, stays steady and is easy to handle. Aircraft Spruce had great delivery time too. This iron makes me want to cover more airplanes!

Excellent tool to get in your garage, very fast delivery from Aircraft Spruce Canada. This iron can be used everywhere where you need precision and versatility. More expensive then other iron available in Canada but last way longer. Stop looking for cheap version, this one worth the money invested, trust us we have tried 4 other brands (2 are note available in Canada anymore, and it is a good thing).
I have been building model airplanes for about 25 years and I have had so many irons and this is by far the BEST one I have ever used. It is well well worth the money. I am restoring my 1946 Piper J-3C 65 Cub and it works GREAT. The digital temperature control is dead one. Amazing. I HIGHLY recommend this iron for ALL of your airplane needs. Thanks Aircraft Spruce! God bless!!!
The iron works well, however it did come with some minor damage that looks like it occurred during manufacture. I dont think it affects the operation of the iron.
The Iron is a great tool. Good quality well built. My only problem is that it did not come with any instructions on how to change settings. It did not take long to figure it out but was a little annoying.
I brought the iron to work so I could brought the iron to work so I could varify its temp and temp variation using our $1,200 super precise, thermocouple, touch thermometer...it showed that the iron was 50 degrees hotter than its reading...so I called aviation art...they say theyve sold nearly 800 irons with only one defective...I DECIDED TO GET OUR CHEAP INFRARED THERMOMETER...IT MATCHED THE IRON READING....GOT OUR MAINTENANCE GUYS FLIR (FORWARD LOOKING INFRARED)...IT MATCHED THE IRON READING... MY AVIATION ART IRON SHOWED US HOW OFF OUR $1,200 SOPHISTICATED THERMOMETER WAS... RESULTS: Temp was w/in +/-5° ( +5° to the FLIR, -5° to the cheap infrared) Temp range when set varied +/-5°
