I bought a Mintyboost kit for my first project. I started with a Radio Shack 25 watt soldering iron. It takes a long time to melt my lead-free solder, and the tip is big so I soldered two components together by mistake.
I want to buy a "better" iron, and I'm inclined to take your recommendation and purchase the XYTronic one from you, but I can't find much information about tips...
Many folks on the web seem impressed with Weller irons, but they're at least 2x the cost of the XYTronic.. but if I went that way, I could buy the "ST7" tip and the reviews make it seem all would be right with my Mintyboost project.
Is the XYTronic's tips suitable for a range of projects, including Mintyboost? Where could I buy changeable tips?
