Soldering Iron Tips
« on: January 11, 2021, 07:34:44 AM »
I got a cheap 30W soldering iron as a stopgap.

Unfortunately, the tip lasted approx 30 minutes of use. The tip is 75mm long, approx 3.5mm diameter and held in place by two grub screws. Does anyone know of a better quality tip that would fit?

actually a 4mm drill bit fits with loosely so it might take up to 4.5mm

The Weller tips I use cost more than your iron did!  Not sure what to recommend that would be inline with your budget.
