I noted that Keith had said in an earlier thread that he used a solder
station set at 650F. I have a TC201 (42 watt) with a 700F short conical tip
and it takes a long time to solder the shell. I usually use the gun to help
but am shy of hands unless at the bench. I want to get a larger mass tip
and was considering 800F rating. Is this excessively hot? Thanks!
