What should we write if we don't know WHAT do you try to solder, also nobody need a multimeter to solder.
Sorry, but your question ist §"Q$%&T$R/&(%&.
The multimeter is to test for shorts.
I'm going to be soldering in modchips.
That is possible with your "kit".
But with no knowledge - and i think if you ask you have no knowledge - the best solder tip can't help you.
Sorry, buy it and learn on a dead pc motherboard, a controller card or whatever, but ... ^^
Btw, i suggest to buy a solder tip from weller or ersa.
Hmm... Could I use copper phone wires for installing? I already have a ton of that.
I'd add a stand for the soldering iron and go with normal solder, rather than paste. As for copper phone wire, well that depends, if it's a small enough gauge, then there should be no problems using it, but if it's multicore stuff, then it'll make it a lot harder than if you were using single core. Also I'm unsure exactly what type of wire you mean by copper phone wire, but if it's enamelled wire, then depending how old it is, you might have to sit there scraping the ends with a knife to remove the enamel before you can use it.
You would be better with a temperature controllable ESD safe solder station with .2mm conical tips.
That multimeter looks a bit nasty too. You need a proper bench multimeter and illuminated magnifier. You do realise the probes will be the thickness of like 2 IC pins.
Do you mean the wire from like a 3 pair telco cable if so I honestly think you should stop now, I don't think you realise the scale of soldering.
That is too thick.
Its not you that needs ESD protection only its the iron too! AC fixed wattage irons are rubbish.
sorry just noticed it's a GC modchip not Wii so should be ok.
do you really need to ask
