Please help with tinning the soldering iron tip.?
Can you please explain what I'm doing wrong. When I try to tin the tip of the soldering iron, the solder turns into a small ball and rolls off. I have a 25 watt cheap iron and an adjustable temp iron the goes from 25 watts to 45 watts. That happens on both. I have managed to make the first two bots from your lessons 4 and 5 without tinning the tip but I think that is the reason I'm having trouble soldering things.Thank you.
