Here at GMP, we take pride in being able to provide our customers with some of the best tools for the job. When it comes to lead sheath cable tools, GMP has everything you might need to complete any task with maximum efficiency. Below is a list of lead tools that will help you get the job done:

GMP’s Solder Melting Pot is made from high-grade cast iron, which is designed to hold the heat. The pot is manufactured in 6 and 8-inch sizes. The loop located on the steel bail turns freely in the ears of the container, reducing the chance of a spill. The Pot Hook Handle links up with the steel loop making it ideal for carrying the solder pot to and from work sites. There’s a pothook on one end and a cable hook and handle on the other. The entire handle is made from 3/8 inch (10mm) steel rod. The working load limit for the Pot Hook Handle is 100 pounds (45 kgs.)

Our soldering irons are designed with a wooden handle to keep heat away from your hand and made of 100% forged copper that’s swaged onto the end of a one-piece steel shank. Dense coppers are designed for soldering heavy gauge metals, and light coppers are for thinner metals. Using the incorrect size of copper usually results in either poorly soldered joints or overheating.

The Lead Ringing Pliers are an invaluable tool for anyone working with paper insulated lead cable and are perfect for scoring the lead. It also enables the user to remove paper insulation up to the desired point, neatly, quickly, safely, and efficiently. The tool features heavy-duty plastic-dipped handles to ensure grip-ability when working.

GMP’s Utility Propane Furnace is designed to heat materials for slicing operations. This efficient solder melting furnace delivers a hefty 43,000 BTU output on just 2 pounds per hour of conventional propane.
