Rosin-core 60/40 (lead/tin) or silver-bearing (from Radio Shack) solder. Small diameter.
15W or 25W or 30W pencil-tipped iron.
Flux (optional but recommended)
Solder Wick (just in case)

Get whichever one has the pointiest tip!! Not one of those flathead irons. They make modding easy-peasy smile.gif
