Nice and fits sku.22253 with a little space. – 40W Lead-Free Soldering Iron Tips (4-Tip Set) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
I bought it for sku.22253 and it did fit with a small gap between the housing and the tip. But it does the job.
Cons:
The quality could be better, and the heating surface (inside the iron) could be "bead blasted" for better heat transmission.
Other:
This item states 40W and I use it for 60W. I'm not sure what the effect will be, but it's OK for now. Probably the tip life will be greatly reduced.
Bottomline:
This item is quite cheap, and for this price I didn't expect too much. It does what it was made for, so I'm quite happy.
