The choosing of soldering iron tip for PCB work

2016/7/3 7:25:52

I have access to a weller WLC100 solder station that currently has the stock solder tip which is 3.2mm which is too large for me. I was thinking about get Kester 44 resin core 0.032 solder Now I am thinking which size of screwdriver tip to choose, 1.6mm or 2.4mm, which is better?

I use a 1.6mm with my WP25 for PCB's and the 4.8mm in the WP35.

Kester "44" is not the greatest solder in the world . the 63% tin/37% lead type is very good.

I use RadioShack's standard 60/40 (tin/lead) resin core in 0.032" and 0.062" diameter, which works good.
