This tacking iron is intended to replace the difficult-t0-find Hanger 9 product.
This item has a large and smooth shoe that holds much heat.
There are two model variations
The basic model only heats to about 135-160 F, which is ideal for removing spine tics without damaging the book cover.
The “variable tacking iron ” presents an on/off switch, indicator light, and variable temperature! The Level 9 is appropriate for silver/bronze books while Level 8 is about right for modern books. Update 11/25/2023- Variable is currently backordered. We will receive about 12/10/23. You can purchase now and we will ship once we receive.
