Default Hakko Iron ?

hey guys,

looking to get a new iron and YES i did a search and still have a couple questions

it looks like the 936-12 is the hakko of choice for rc applications

questions #1. I will only be using it to A. hard-wire packs into my rc car. B connecting esc wires to endbells C. changing esc wires

What is the tip to use for those purposes i will not be building packs with it

also what is the proper way to use the hakko as far as turning the heat up from my search it semed like a couple people had probs cause all they did was turn the knob all the way up and burnt out something

thanks

For the applications you mention, the small chisle(sp?) tip would work perfectly, I do not know the part number, but the Hakko website should have it. As far as the temperature of the iron, I always have it turned all the way up and have not burned it out yet (I have been using it for a good two years). Hope this helps.

i just got my hakko 936 today and its awesome! heats up fast and really hot. the tip that comes with it should be fine for your application. i got mine at ebay for 60+ shipping from hagenmeyer. hes the cheapest hakko seller in ebay some sells it for 99!! he does run out sometimes but be patient.

3.2mm for all around. chiesel tip
5mm for batteries. chiesel tip i myself do my batteries with the 3.2mm. you just have to wait a minute after each bar.
order from www.kiesub.com they also list the tips.
kester solder works great its a 60/40 or 63/37 model "44"

Mine seems to be provide more consistent and hotter tips when I keep it on low when not in use and turn it up when I need it. It only takes a few seconds to heat up.

When I leave it on constantly, it doesn't perform as well.

I went from a 25 watt POS to a 936, all I can say is WOW. Before I couldn't even get solder to stick on batteries, now I can build a pack in less than 10 minutes, you will not regret getting one.

I also got mine from kiesub, it was 79.99 + s/h and I got the flat 5.2mm tip.

Yes get the bigger tip....

Always turn it down when not using, it only take a few secs to come up to temp.

Here is a site that makes a exact copy of the Hakko and it is only $35.00
Check it out.
Although I already bought the Hakko.
Heck you could get Tres to make a face plate for it and no one could tell it wasn;t a Hakko.
Just trying to save a few bucks for you guys.

The Circuit iron is only 40W, where the Hakko is 60W.....

I did a review on HT, let me see if I can find it and post....

I had no problems using the circuit iron to do batteries.

And yes, the plates/wraps are the same.....

Here is some of the info:

Quick break down of some basic test.

......................................Hakko...... CSI
cold to Low Temp.............16sec .......21sec

From Low temp to MAX......37sec........47sec

I was able to solder a 6 cell pack with no problem using the CSI.


At less than half the cost of my Hakko, I would have no problem using the CSI iron in my pit....

Small differences between the 2
DIN cable, male vs. female(see pic)
LED
Soldering iron cord length is shorter by about 8" on the CSI
CSI also included extra heating element
