Well ... you can use a 45W iron - but if you have a cooks blowtorch that might be better. me... I use an arc-welder.

Use a temperature controlled iron and the wattage won't matter. I have a 35w and a 45w .. but I set them at 330 degrees celsius ..

Do yourself a favor:
Go buy a new iron.

And find a good light so you can see. (a halogen desk lamp helps a lot)

Remember solder is like braile cream: a little dab will do ya.
anyone remember braile cream?

I've got a 40watt temp controlled one I'm gonna probably use for it smile.gif

fixed a v64jr for my n64 with it ages ago without burning anything and I was soldering a chip in place smile.gif biggrin.gif

bought it for 50 and they were selling for 150-200 smile.gif beerchug.gif

10 to 15 watts should be used. Anything higher and your asking for it. beerchug.gif

How good are your soldering skilz?
i've been using a 60watt soldering iron to do psx and xbox without any probs but i must say this is @ your own risk. a 15watt should be much better!

And yes, anything over 30w is most definitly asking for it. If you have to ask yourself this question "should i use 45w?" you might wanna think twice about doing it yourself. Nothing personal.

I definately wouldn't go with it with an iron reated that high unless it was temperature controlled. I'd use a good temperature controlled iron, I use a butane powered iron myself.

What's braile cream? Is that for blind people so their hands don't dry out and they can feel the bumps? jester.gif
