my dad has an older weller one as well. he said he wants to get a new one because the tip on the weller is too bulky, and would be too hard to work on small electric parts. would you agree? i'd only be using it for work on guitar ampsI have one that I've had forever. Typical pistol type but has a light on it that turns on when you pull the trigger.
The light is VERY helpful. I would recommend getting one that has a light.
This looks like an updated version of the kit that I bought years ago:
Been using a Weller adjustable heat station for 12 years, works great and I can get replacement tips at the local electronics store.
whats a good soddering iron for working on amps? links would be appreciated.
will that hakko come with an appropriate soldering tip?
what is kester 44 63/37?
2 final questions
1) i found out that there's 3 types of hakko 936's
936-11 (Small Iron)
936-12 (Medium Iron)
936-13 (Large Iron)
whats the need fo different iron's and which one should i get for amp work?
2) i have some solder laying around here somewhere, does it need to be that kester stuff or can any solder be used?
in other words, does the quality of the kester make it better for in amps?
