Spare tips are available on Ebay.
Sorry mate - some people are beyond help, you fall into that category.
You're still somehow missing the point @pennyfarthing88. What you're suggesting is tantamount to posting up the entire internet on HUKD. If I happen on that Antex iron for a fiver I'll post it up, because that would be a deal. A tenner is it's normal price, so it's not a deal. A Lidl soldering iron for two quid less isn't a deal. If I was to take your approach of posting up the entire Lidl tool selection every other week I could claim as many posted deals as you, but I have the gumption to know when something is a deal and when it isn't, so I don't. I really couldn't give a toss what people think, this is a deal site not my social circle. http://cpc.farnell.com/antex/sn82270/soldering-iron-30w/dp/SD00834 https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/ER30-soldering-iron-from-Antex-SYN2420/323250277845?epid=2254725656&hash=item4b4337cdd5:g:McUAAOxyiOxRy~td https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B006DIGXGS/ref=mp_s_a_1_19?ie=UTF8&qid=1527546181&sr=8-19&refinements=p_89:Antexπ=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=antex+soldering+irons&dpPl=1&dpID=21HI-dI5tyL&ref=plSrch http://cpc.farnell.com/c/tools-maintenance/soldering/soldering-iron-tips/antex-soldering-iron-tips https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B003DP5UOK/ref=mp_s_a_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1527546329&sr=8-10π=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=antex+40w
The tips look as though they screw into the end of the iron, never seen this type of tip fitting so indeed probably difficult to get spares. The tips we use at work cost about £5 each and are readily available Weller spares, they are solid copper with an iron plating, using modern ROHS compliant lead free solder the temperature we need to set our irons to ranges from 350-390 centigrade. Tips without plating won't last too long but as this product is also used for wood burning this is not an issue and means this product could last many years if used for that. Our soldering stations cost about £400 but are used all day everyday , I owned an Antex 25watt mains powered iron for years and the tips are readily available even today. As has been said lets not get personal about this, life is too short to stress about f
Chill guys, it's far too hot for armchair warfare.
