Hey fellas @rojitor @aulakiria
I powered up for the first time today, since my old gas powered soldering iron is just not up to the job I needed to use the sodlering function first to make a x60 -> x90 connector (for VESC detection). I'll look at spot welding when ready..
I found an old laptop charger and it first up very nicely on 20v (3.25A), it powered right up and it was obvious, turn the knob to increase temp. I increased to 300c and it was too easy to to work the solder and flux/tin the wires, very nice control.
Anyway I hit my first road bump , the soldering tip is very sharp on this lovely Hakko but I was thinking I could use a wider tip? I bought a set of soldering tips from hobbyking some time ago and tried to fit them but their ID is too small by about 0.5 mm. Maybe Hakko should have some kind of tip retainer....I don't know
Anyway can you link a set(10 pack variety) of soldering tips which would work with this Hakko pen on eBay (shipping friendly) whic are known to fit correctly?
Ps. I even like the startup tune
