Originally used for applying adhesive backed edgebanding, this iron has a nonstick soleplate coating and a lacquered hardwood handle that remains cool during use. Die cast aluminum soleplate heats up to 395 degrees F and assures even heat distribution. A stand is supplied for storage while hot iron is idle. Soleplate measures 1 5/8" wide x 4 5/8" ling. The handle is 6" long and overall length of the iron is 11 3/4". Operates on 115v through a 5 1/2" 18/2 cord.
This unique tool can also be used to melt the seaming tape from the back of a carpet when needing to mechanic a new seam and or new seam area within a seam. It can easily be placed under the carpet within a seam area; otherwise, the entire seam would need to be split and with the use of a seaming iron, melt the original tape off the backing.
