I have a 40W weller that I bought from Lowes. It has a wide tip for batteries and a narrow tip that works great for motor wires

It's all good dude. Just fun'n the tone is hard To read on here HUH? Just trying to make you laugh. I got a laugh on your post. Go with the weller 40 watt. But dont forget to let us know what you buy we'll be biteing our finger's waiting to find out. Drifting looks cool, So let'm hang out.

Later street racer.

This is the one I use: http://www.web-tronics.com/autsolirstat.html

Works great, heats up in about 30-40seconds. Comes with a needle point tip, so you will need a wider tip, but works excellent. Has all the features of more expensive units.

COOL One time at the track a guy said can I borrow your soldering iron. I said sure and threw him my lighter. Thats why I put the little smily face's on the post. And usally you get what you pay for. The weller's are about 20, 25.
Cant loose.

I just got this one and it seems pretty good so far. I had to replace my 1995 weller station that died this summer.

If you can find the old-school weller irons grab one. I got one from the 70'-early 80's that works like a charm-can still get tips no problem. Like old school tekin stuff it will last.

All i have to say is Hakko 936, i know its a little expensive but it works flawlessley, totally worth it. As far as tips for it, Hakko has literally like 40 different kinds for it. Save up and buy it.

Just go to Menards and buy the $13.99 40 Watt Wide chisel tip Weller and then go buy an nice solder stand/station that holds the sponge and iron, you'll have about $20-$25 into the perfect iron to use. anything else is just over kill.
