11 February 2016 Question by: Peter
Q. Hello, Whats the difference between 85-4850 and 85-4852? Thanks
A. Hi Peter, thank you for your question. They are for use on different stations as the plugs are different: 85-4852 TCP-S is for the P50/51 stations, 85-4850 for older Weller stations incorporating the 3 way Bulgin type socket.


15 October 2015 Question by: W Mulligan
Q. I am using a TCP 24 with PTAA7 tip which is great with leaded solder but I seem to have issues trying to use with unleaded solder. Is there a more suitable tip for use with unleaded solder (with colophony free flux), solder in question is 1 core 96SC Tin/Silver/Copper
A. Hi W Mulligan, thank you for your question. These tips are designed for use with lead free solder, they may just require re-tinning, something like 85-0630 would be suitable.


30 September 2015 Question by: Mr John Hall
Q. I need a spare cable and Bulgin female plug assembly for the Weller TCP iron, together with a matching Bulgin male plug (panel mount will do) in order to make up an extension cable. Can you supply these parts, please?
A. Hi John, thank you for your question. The parts required are 23-1220 and 23-1215.

09 April 2013 Question by: R.Pearce | Product code: 85-4850
Q. These irons do not take the original PTAA7 tips (84-4850), as the barrel end hole is very small. (we have purchased one and it not compatible) Do you stock Weller TCP 24 volt irons that will take the PTAA7 tip that used to be fitted ' as standard'?
A. Hi R Pearce. Thank you for your question. Weller changed the design on new irons a few years back - they now take the LT series tips. However you can purchase a barrel with the larger hole separately to convert it back to the old system if you so wish.


27 March 2012 Question by: Neil Reynolds
Q. Do you stock the station for this iron. I can't find it, but the plug is very specific for the Weller station.
A. Hi Neil, our supplier has advised that the power unit for just TCP irons has been discontinued by Weller for some years. The most practical option is to use the P51 power unit (85-4905) and change the plug on the TCP iron (23-1220)
