  • Tips for choosing the correct soldering iron tip

    I use a Radio Shack digital soldering station EVERY day at work(the boss saves money where he can). I have been using conical tips at 774 degrees (after reading your article, I see why they don't last long). The labels are gone from our spools of wire, so I don't know what gauge we use (it is thin as hair). We also use a couple surface mount components in series within our circuit (not on a board). I see you use a "Hoof" tip for small gauge. Would these help in our setting? Our circuit is VERY unusual to say the least (check us out on youtube _ ultravoice speaking device).Thanks for the info and article. New things to learn! I like it!Darryl
