Resistance Soldering > Soldering Accessories

A Resistance Soldering System is only as good as your 'Point of Contact'. American Beauty incorporates only the highest quality electrodes and elements into our handpieces. All Carbon and Stainless steel electrodes are Copper-Clad for improved current flow, excecpt for Models 10565, 10566, 105134 & 105159 whose short lengths don't require such measures. Inferior quality electrodes and elements will affect overall system performance and could void applicable warranties.

Model 10519 - Footswitch

For foot control of most power units up to and including model 105C1. Eliminates sparking on contact and removal of electrodes from work. Provides more accurate timing of soldering operations. Recommended in most applications. A rugged, industrial switch with six-foot (1.83m), three-wire cord and NEMA 5-15 P/R piggyback plug.

 
Model 105V12 - Grounding Vise for Holding Parts Hands-Free
  • This versatile accessory functions as a holding fixture while providing a return path to the power unit. For use with single electrode resistance soldering or tweezer handpieces with Model 105Y10 adapter.
  • Work is held at a comfortable 3½" (88.9mm) height
  • Compatible with resistance soldering units up to and including Model 105B2 at 1100W and all single electrode handpieces. 6" extension cable included.

Description: Grounding vise is a versatile holding fixture for your resistance soldering needs. Constructed from solder-resistant polished aluminum and supplied with four multi-positional .125" x .5" (3.18mm x 12.7mm) chromed pins. The vise section has a total of 60 holes (30 per side) to accept the four vise pins. The 5.5"diamiter base features a socket receptacle for using the 12" extension lead, with alligator clip (also supplied), to allow for a current return path when the part held in the vise is non-conductive. The overall height of this unit is 3.5 inches.

Uses: Attach the vise to a resistance soldering power unit by plugging the taper pin quick connect terminal, on the end of the lead, into either socket of the power unit (the one not being used by the single electrode handpiece) and firmly twisting, clockwise. Secure the work piece in the vise by first aligning the pins, then closing the vise onto the workpiece by turning the knob counter-clockwise. Do not over tighten. It is preferable to hold the workpiece so that it does not touch the surface of the vise in order to reduce heat sinking into the vise during soldering.

The unique pin system of the Model 105V12 can be extended to hold larger parts by forming custom pins from 1/8" diameter brass or copper rod stock. Insertion depth for vise pins is ¼". If larger, custom pins are used, better results are achieved with use of the 12" extension lead.

Recommended Power Units: Model 105A3, Model 105A3T, Model 105A12, Model 105B2,

WARNING: Elements and electrodes generate significant heat when power is applied. The vise may become hot when being used over an extended period of time. Use with caution to prevent burns, fire or other potential damage. Normal use of this product is likely to expose the user to solders containing lead, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects (or other reproductive harm) or other Proposition 65 listed chemicals
