I have a basic knowledge and ability when it comes to soldering having only chipped a Ps1 and more recently a Game Cube. I am interested in developing a good technique for my own interest but also to have the confidence to perhaps modify a more recent console as a Game Cube is ok,but you can buy them for £15 Its a different matter when its a brand new Wii say or Xbox 360?!
Ive also learnt the hardway the lesson of buying cheap tools! So could anyone advise me on a good Soldering Iron especially (maybe an "industry standard" that modders go for perhaps?) but also solder,flux etc.
