Hakko FX-601 Soldering Iron HAKKO FX-601 SOLDERING IRON

The Hakko FX-601 is the next generation of adjustable temp-controlled soldering irons from Hakko. This small, lightweight iron will outperform the most popular 100W soldering irons on the market today. Ideal for all your stained glass applications, from small decorative projects to windows.

  • Ceramic heating element for longer service life than normal conventional nichrome-iron (NiCr) element.
  • Adjustable electronic temperature control, no rheostat needed.
  • 10 temperature settings between 464°-1004°.
  • Alloy-coated iron tips ensure long-lasting protection from corrosion.
  • Super Fast thermal recovery. Faster than the 556SE and 5x faster than a 456
  • Extremely Lightweight, well-balanced with a slender, ergonomic handle.
  • An excellent iron for large stained glass panels and lead came.
  • Energy efficient 67 watts (to understand wattage vs heating technology, click here)
  • Extra long, 3-wire 6 foot power cord.
  • 120V only
  • UL/CSA Approved
  • T19-D5 standard tip (~3/16") included

Hakko FX-601 Temperature Controlled Soldering Iron



Note: The small, blue tool included is a temperature adjustment tool for electronic "process control" supervisors to set and lock the iron temperature so operators cannot accidentally or intentionally change the temperature of the iron. This is useful when soldering delicate or temperature sensitive electronic components.

This tool is not needed by stained glass artisans.


The Hakko 503 Red iron is an economical and lightweight 60W iron that is ideal for beginners, students and hobbyists working on their first stained glass project or that do small work like suncatchers and casting.  Heating element is nichrome and can attain temperature over 900°.  You get the power of a 100W iron, but use less energy!

Hakko Iron CoverHakko Portable Soldering Iron Cover (Hot Sock)

Ever finished using your iron outside your studio and needed to run somewhere but the iron was too hot to put away? This portable iron cover will allow you to slip the iron into the cover and put in your bag and go! Offers superior heat resistance and thermal insulation.  Works with FX-601, but not the 503.

# 605    $ 9.95

Hakko FS-100Hakko Soldering Iron Tip Cleaning Paste

The Hakko FS-100 paste re-tins and helps restore heavily oxidized soldering iron tips back to useful life. 100% lead-free. The flux does not contain Diammonium phosphate and does not leave a harmful residue.

For optimum performance, use in conjunction with the Hakko 599B tip cleaner. 10 grams.

Important Information about Irons

(1) Wire-wound heating elements work like your kitchen toaster -- electrical resistance heats up the wire. They are very INEFFICIENT (wastes energy) thus REQUIRING A LOT OF ENERGY (example, 100W) to heat up the whole heating element. Wire-wound heating elements are less expensive to manufacture, therefore the soldering iron's performance is equal to its price.

(2) Ceramic heating elements send electricity to just the area where the heat is needed (at the soldering iron tip.) Ceramic is VERY EFFICIENT and REQUIRES LESS ENERGY = LESS WATTS, PRODUCES MORE HEAT, maintains its heat longer, and its thermal recovery (the tip's ability to come back up to soldering temperature) is FASTER than a wire-wound heating elements. Ceramic heating elements are more complex heating mechanisms that cost more to manufacture, thus the soldering iron's performance is equal to its price.

The Hakko FX-601 (67W) is more efficient and heats up to more or equal to a 100W soldering iron that use a wire-wound heating element. Therefore, please do not equate a soldering iron's temperature and performance with its wattage without taking into consideration the soldering iron's heating technology.

Users Beware: An inexpensive soldering iron is probably using the inferior (wire-wound) heating element technology. So remember, it is true that you get what you pay for.
