When 60 watt is heated up, its over kill lol

IMO, 50 watt would be perfect

The px tips are shown with another soldering iron px-251 but they should fit since they also listed for use with the px-201.

Default The BEST Soldering Iron for the money! My opinion!!!

I don't know if anybodys mentioned the HAKKO 981 Presto. It's a gun that's has two stage 20w constant and at the push of a button 130w. I've soldered batteries with then to small antenna wire on recievers. Of coarse you will need the chisel tip and the pointed tip. It comes with the pointed tip so the chisel tip is another $6.00. When you push that button the solder melts like right now and very small and compact to fit in you box and it's a Hakko so you know it's good quality. The best part is it's only $39.99. This gun is my little secret so don't tell anybody or you'll never find them. I bought mine at Fry's Electronics.
Just my $2.
