I am finishing soldering the wires to the 2B-25 connector. I am using a cheap iron and it got me thinking this step may be easier with a different iron. I am a soldering novice, and was wondering if the experts here could provide some insight on the following:
1. What type of soldering iron is requisite for this work (wattage, heat capacity etc.)
2. What type of tip is recommended for this work?
3. What type of solder is recommended (composition ratio, diameter)
4. Is the best way to solder the wire to the 25 connecter by heating the cup with the iron then applying solder?
I apologize for these questions, but am trying to wrap my mind around all of it.
