Looking for the proper tip for Hakko F-88D (bent, chisel point)

Just like the title says... Looking for a soldering tip that is the right size for Arduino through hole soldering, and is bent with chisel tip. Brand new to this game, and not immediately finding what I'm looking for.

This is my favourite Hakko FX888D soldering iron tip:


Also love the gull wing tip:

Different posts in this thread might be interesting to you:

What is this? Is it conical all the way, or chisel at the end?

Model #?

These are Bent Conical 30°


I actually ordered one of those the other day. Do you know if they make this same tip with a small chisel point?

Don’t think so, however, you could do it yourself, but do it very slowly.

A blow torch might be helpful.

I'm guessing that, due to the coatings, these probably aren't good candidates for grinding/shaping?


You might grind thru the outer layer.

However, the DIY small Gull Wing tip in this image was not penetrated when I attempted to make it from a normal Bevel tip.
