Question What temp do you solder at?

First of all, I hope Im posting this in the right section. Apologies if not.

I just decided to purchase my first real soldering iron, an Aoyue Int937+.

I've never used anything other than cheapo radio shack style irons. Now I've got this temperature controlled soldering station, and realized I don't even know what temperature to solder at.

What do you guys have yours set at when doing drivers, diodes, etc ?

Im expecting my stainless host from survival tomorrow and getting antsy to complete my 445 build that I've put off for years. :-D

Default Re: What temp do you solder at?

I have a temperature controlled solder station and I set it for 350 degrees C. It is also safe at 400 C, but don't spend a lot of time heating the pins. I can usually get a pin soldered in two seconds or less.

Default Re: What temp do you solder at?

Not trying to hijack but could you guys also include what solder formulations you are using as well? I have done a couple budget builds, but as I am moving toward my most expensive build yet I am trying to make sure i am really prepared on every aspect. Thanks for the info!

Default Re: What temp do you solder at?

63/37 solder has virtually no plastic state, it will solidify as soon as heat is removed unless your iron is over temp severely.
350 plus a hair is a good setting, but if you are using higher melt temp solder see the graph.
Here's a graph.

Default Re: What temp do you solder at?

I use solder with a rosin core, 63 37 at around 200 C. I have a very narrow iron tip for fine work. Remember to keep the tip clean - wipe on wet pad after use and before taking new solder. If you take too long on a joint and the solder stops flowing well, add a little extra flux.

Default Re: What temp do you solder at?

I can't solder well due to a shaky hand but I have been using Harbor Freight Tools easy solder that come spiral in small plastic tube. I can't find the package its in so i'm wondering what is "easy solder" basicly and what are it draw backs?

I have never heard of "easy solder" and can't find it in searches on Harbor Freight or anywhere else, but I do know the standard 60/40 as well as lead free solder come packaged that way. It is probably just the standard 60/40 as the lead free would not be labeled easy, it has a higher melting point and is not as easy. The 63/37 has a slightly lower melting point making it the easiest to work with. The 60/40 works fine for me though.

Ok I did find it my monthly catalog. Lot# 69378. It's showing it in its 1/2 round by 4 in. long tube without the original package that said easy solder.
Its said as Lead- Free Rosin Core Solder. Not much in it as its wound like a 3/8 in. spring.
I can't compare it yet to any other type as thats all iv'e used for now.

Found it: Lead-Free Rosin Core Solder it says melting point is 422.6F, you would find the 60/40 or 63/37 easier to work with.

Maybe it's easy because of the plastic dispenser because you can just pull it out the top and always see how much is left instead of using a spool.

Brace your hands at the edge of your table/desk and have your work piece held in place with a helping hand stand or such, but bracing at your table edge will help a lot.

You know i'm beginning to think thats what their idea of easy solder is

RedC, keeping my arms rested on the edge of a table helps and the helping hands do make it alot easier. I also only have one so I need to get another and also make up a gizzmo with bendable arms and clips at the end. Those plastic snap together oil flow tubes are so popular here and seem to work great.

Default Re: What temp do you solder at?

Right on thanks for the info guys.

I also have a very shaky hand when soldering. It seems the more I try to steady it, the worse it gets too. I dont know if it's a mental thing or what.

On a sode note: Am I the only one that has a problem pronouncing solder properly? I know it is supposed to be said like Sah-Dur. But not matter what i keep reverting back to Sol-dur.

Well when referring to a sah-during iron I say Sah-dur, or when Sah-during something I say Sah-dur, but the wire stuff we use I call solder, this might not be correct either but who cares.
