Well, I forgot to add that, while I don't change tip temperature, I do
change tip type/size for different applications - just a handful of
sizes covers 99% of tasks, with a big one obvs for applications that
need decent heat transfer.
Also, cleaning cleaning cleaning - perhaps leaded is more forgiving?
I'm guessing you're working entirely lead-free, Mattias?
