    Description

    I created this rack to make my soldering iron tips easier to manage with my X-Tronic soldering station. This rack holds 8 Hakko-style 7mm soldering iron tips, or threaded-insert heater tips.

    This rack has holes for mounting on the X-Tronic iron holder, though if you have a different surface where you want to mount, you can poke or drill your own screw-hole, mount with double-sided foam tape or 3M mounting tape, or edit the provided Fusion 360 file to change or relocate your holes.

    Materials and methods

    I used PETG, 20% infill, and M4x8mm and M5x8mm screws to attach it. My screws have integrated washer and lock washer, but that's not required. My X-Tronic soldering iron holder is from the X-Tronic 6040-XTS solder/hot air station, though a. they've shipped different versions of this kit, and b. looks like this rack will fit the left-hand side of several of their holders, as well as some Aoyue holders.

    Hey left-handers: print it mirrored and attach it to the right-hand side if you have your solder on the left.
