Product Title (In box)
The Steren 48 Watt Temperature Controlled Soldering Station is the perfect tool for the Hobbyist and can be used for installations, repairs, and limited production work. This temperature-controlled soldering station consists of an electrical power supply, soldering iron, non-heat sinking funnel and LED Display. It supplies heat to melt solder so the solder can flow into the joints between two work pieces. Low-grade soldering irons offer less than 20 Watts of power and mid-grade 20-30 Watts – this iron offers 48 Watts – so you’ll get a longer-lasting tool that will work for a much wider variety of applications and you’ll get proper heat control.


  • Electronic temperature regulation
  • Adjustable dial range 300-700°F
  • 48-Watt 24-volt
  • Anti-static fully grounded
  • LED-array temperature display
  • Built-in tray with cleaning sponge
  • Non heat-sinking spring funnel
  • Nickel-plated iron-clad conical tip

Finally! A Handyman’s dream—perfect for a casual DIYer or a professional the amazing, multi-function Rapid Tools Rapid Shark Heavy-duty Combination Utility Knife is two specialized tools in one sleek, rugged case. Tired of buying utility knives with hard to grip holders and cheap blades that breaks after a couple uses? Wouldn’t it be great if you could get multiple uses out of one tool versus wasting time going back and fourth to your tool box when cutting carpet, drywall, nylon rope, asphalt shingles, or any other fixer-upper line of work.

The all new Rapid Tools Rapid Shark Heavy-duty Combination Utility Knife is the only tool that combines a professional utility knife with a quality wire stripper, cutter and crimper. No more hustle and bustle with those outdated utility knives—now you can get twice as much done with a single tool, for one outstanding low price. The Shark’s knife and wire stripper are uniquely combined in a rugged, ergonomic case that’s about the same size as a standard knife. It includes five Rapid Edge patented, serrated blades that cut better and are guaranteed to last longer. The Shark’s pliers-like grip for the wire stripper locks securely into the body of the knife when it is not in use. For easy opening and comfortable cutting action, the Shark’s knife is spring loaded along with five precision-ground stripping holes in order to easily remove insulation from thick 10 to 18 gauge wires. Extra blades can also be stored within the holder and a quick change design allows you to efficiently remove an old blade and replace it with a new one. Take a bite out of your work and make that next project easier on you with a Rapid Tools Rapid Shark Heavy-duty Combination Utility Knife.

Use this Plug-in Tester to Check Connections of Standard and GFCI Outlets

May 10, 2012 Leave a comment

The TRC 30090012-6 GFCI Outlet Tester was designed to check the integrity of the wiring for ground fault and standard outlets. It also tests for proper function of GFCI outlets. The Wiring Diagnostics checks Line Neutral and Ground Wire Integrity. The GFCI Tester inspects for proper operation and nuisance tripping. There are separate tests for a 6mA ground fault and a 3mA ground fault. The Power Quality Monitor (PQM) identifies excessive voltage drop (approx. 6V) on the branch circuit by measuring the voltage between neutral and ground. This outlet tester is a great tool for an electrician or anyone wanting to check the outlet wiring in their home.
