Right, I'd be surprised if even a 60 watt gun did any good, as they just can't produce enough heat at the tip to make that much of a difference(& more importantly, a gun's tip just doesn't have enough surface area to transfer heat quickly to the thigns you;re soldering). I'd just reccomend that you get a 40-60watt pencil-type iron with a decent, broad chisel style tip, those will work just fine....
