American Beauty 3125 Soldering Iron

Found this soldering iron while organizing the shop.  Not sure where/when I got it.  Must have been an auction box lot.  Looked it up and found American Beauty is still going strong.  Was able to pickup some replacement tips and set screws (yes, could have got those anywhere but was too easy not to order them with the tips).

It heats up great and really gets the job done.  Posted a few pics of some initial tinning.  Certainly an industrial / production type iron, no bells and whistles, not even a switch.  Going to try tinning some thin cable (bicycle – brake and shift).
