Hey all, I'm moving ever forward with my project and one thing I'm going to need is a soldering Iron. I've got a soldering gun, but that's obviously not the best tool for the job. I'm on a stupid tight budget for the time being, so my options are pretty limited.... I considered looking for a used iron but I doubt there's much out there in my price range. I half considered putting a wanted ad on craigslist just saying 'good home to adjustable soldering iron' or something like that, but with my luck I'd end up getting kidnapped or something :o :confused:
I had considered running to harbor freight and grabbing a $4 Soldering iron, but after researching I'm under the impression I'll need something adjustable for working on things like Arduino Boards. Is this correct?
Here are a few irons I'm considering, I'd appreciate any input!
