Go to www.bomir.com. And find a goot TQ series. I have had a TQ-95 for a year now this orginal tip. This pen has a 150 watts of power. In which you don't need to buy a big tip to do batteries. Plus tip is right size to replace speed controller wires (12 guage)with easy. Nice thing about TQ series is they have a idle temperate so the tips will last a long time. Plus you can solder small gauge servo wires with easy. Probably TQ-95 best feature is price 30.00. It does need a stand. When I ordered mine with a couple of tips & nice stand they have there price was 50.00 shipped.
Dan I'm not trying to step on your toes..But the Term "Eutetic" is just how well solder blends together at melting point. All good solder with low melting point have the "Eutetic" process....

That's a good deal on a sweet Iron. I have had mine for over a year, got it at Action Electronics. I think I paid $89 for it. For tips, I use the WE-ETD for batteries and general use. It's a chisel tip and 1/4" wide. I use the tip that comes with it for fine work like servo wires and the like. WE-ETDD is another good tip for batteries, it has a single flat tip.

For the WES51 you should use the 3/16" chesil tip. I just got a new WES51 and new 3/16" tips for JohnFontaine. Man will he be alot happier when we race this weekend as he will be melting solder with ease.

Well at least when you poke them it will be hot enough so they won't bleed at all.

You're absolutely right! When I mentioned Eutetic, I meant to point out that others using the 63/37 calling it a "new type" NASA technology when it in fact is just the lower melting point with silvers involve and different levels of rosin core. Works good I must admit and I've found the best out there is Kester's. Yes, both 60/40 and 63/37 will work fine and I've tried both.

Just wanted to say "thanks" to Fukuyama Racing for putting out a great product. The cells I used at the Novak race at Scotty's were clearly better than anything else in my battery case. Thanks too, to Dan for his generosity.

I'll be a Fukuyama customer for a looooooong time.
