Question

What tips would you recommend for a Hakko soldering iron


I'm about to purchase a Hakko 936 soldering station and want to get the most appropriate tip/s with it at time of purchase. Which tips would you recommend for rc work. I will be soldering Deans Micros, circuit boards and other geneneral rc stuff.

Thanks for your informed advice

A big chisel tip would be good for big wires and Deans. Pencil tip for everything else.

That is a nice soldering station. When my old Weller PTC finally died, I was going to get a Hakko 936, but found a company that sells what appears to be a clone of it for about 1/3 the price. http://www.web-tronics.com/cispdeesdsas.html I have been very happy with it.

Mine came with conical 0.8mm tip(KD-M-0.8D ie 900M-T-0.8D) which is a good all around tip for general circuit board work. It works fine for deans micros, but you may want a little larger chisel tip for general wiring. I also have a KD-M-I(900M-T-I) tip which works great for fine pitch SMD repairs.
