Version 13




    Even with high-quality genuine tips from a brand like Weller,  your tip does not last forever. These 5 useful tips address common soldering iron maintenance questions. Answer questions like: should soldering iron tips last forever? And, which is better for soldering, a wet sponge or a brass sponge?


    A big thank you to the Video Content Producers (VCPs). As I said in the video, I only gave them a few days to record the questions and send them to me. I am super excited to include the following producers in this episode.
