Not easy & in cold WX tough. I have 3 of the old wood handle irons. The
power cords are cloth wrapped. They were my late father in laws.
Probably 150w but can they solder a PL 259 in a wind storm in cold WX.
You might find one at a hamfest or a second hand store. I'd never part
with mine. They are worth their weigh in gold!
I have used a commom Burns-Matic with a solder tip. You have to really
watch it. The flame comes out two small holes an inch or so below the
solder tip. You turn it wrong & you can melt coax and/or your SKIN!
