Default Solder Iron

hi, my solder iron has fumes coming out of it whenever i turn it on

is it broken?

like its coming out from the middle core when i understand fumes should sometimes come out from the tip from the excess solder

Default Re: Solder Iron

There is no resistor inside a standard Soldering Iron....
There is a resistive heating element.. If the smoke is coming
from inside the Iron I would suggest you stop using it.
It may be that some of the wiring or insulation inside that has
started degrading an burning...
This could lead to an electrical short and be potentially
hazzardous to your health...

Default Re: Solder Iron

Is your iron new, or just recently been used? New or unused irons will smoke for about 10 minutes when first used, it will stop. But if it isnt new, then listen to lasersbee....

I would shy away from low priced Irons... If you spend a few
dollars more for an Iron that takes replaceable Clad tips... it
will last you for years and years...

Something like this would do for all your electronics soldering..

WELLER 35-WATT PROFESSIONAL SOLDERING IRON, # WP35 on eBay.ca (item 370208634703 end time 24-May-10 15:36:36 EDT)

We use Weller Soldering stations in the shop and the Iron is similar
to the Iron in the link... The front has a knurled cap that holds the
replaceable Clad tips...
Our tips last about 1 year and we solder almost every day...
Don't forget to also buy some Flux Core Solder...

Any similar higher quality firestarters like that one, with easily accesible tips and 230VAC supply?

I have a temp regulator that will accept any power soldering iron, but, it provides 230VAC during full wave.

Unfortunate, eh?

I would stick with Weller. They make pretty good soldering irons/accessories. And they have a wide variety of tips to choose from that will actually fit.

I looking to get a Weller station that has temperature regulation, and a desolder.

Default Re: Solder Iron

use a sponge, Using steel wool or copper i was told will take of the protective cladding on the tip of an iron.
Also that iron has no esd protection.
I also own 2 of them, They work well but they have no other tips for them. And dont grind them down that will ruin them.
http://www.circuitspecialists.com/prod.itml/icOid/7307
This is very good same as the one above just different name
It is esd protection temp controlled and it is only a bit more, But it has tons of tips no matter what you want to do there is a tip for it.
I liked my weller till i used something just like this at my uni i have even taken it home a few times, its lots better, and worth the little bit extra money imo
