oh wow rdc you have some AWESOME skills i mean like REALLY AWESOME lol what type of tips do you use on y our soldering iron? and whats a good/cheap iron you would recommend ?
you should see the tip to the iron im using iv had it for like a year now and it looks like a big chunk of it is missing lol... but i kinda like that gap it holds the solder pretty good
Like RDC said it mostly depends on personal skills. But I got a radioshack 15/30W and honestly, after a couple of uses I just couldn't get it to do what I wanted. Then went to ACE hardware (any hardware store would work)
And there's a Weller 30W for about $15. This thing has worked AMAZINGLY for me. I mean, I'm no RDC lol, but even I can get some pretty nice stuff to come out with this iron....and yes, tip maintenance is huge also.
