Adafruit: XYTronic solder iron

by davidh on Sat Jun 09, 2012 8:36 pm

Hi,

I was looking for a smaller chisel tip for the Xytronic solder iron. When I looked at the details of the tip and it says the tip designated as lead free have more plating to withstand the higher temperature. I'm guessing the tip dosen't care if it melts leaded solder?

Thanks
David

It will be fine with leaded solder too.
