    I've had a Weller 25w S125D iron for a while and I need a new tip. I cannot remember the specific tip that I need, can anyone help?

    Hi 8bit,
    The tip you need and the tip that fits are very different things.
    You are probably better to look on Ebay or take the iron into your local Maplin's and try what tips fit.
    Then choose the tip end you prefer/need.

    Check the Weller website. They'll list the solder tips that are compatible with your iron.

    Thanks for the answers, I'll check it out. My iron is quite old so I may just buy a new one if I can't find one. I have heard the Weller make of tips are very good quality so wanted to find another. :)

    Hi 8bit.
    There is the same as yours on Ebay right now. Only £4 and no bids. A little TLC and you could use the 'Ebay' iron as your main one and yours as a backup element.

    If you choose to buy a new one, I would recommend Antex irons. I have had 2 of mine for 25 years and still going strong. Parts and tips still available too.

    Thanks for the link Martin. I checked it out but the tip did look quite used, so I might go for a new iron. I have contacted Weller to see if any other tips are compatible.
