What kind of soder do i need

I Have the black and decker soldering iron. it says it goes from 500/900F so i picked up some aluminum soldering rods workable at 700-750F But nothing happens. Iron is on highest setting and is hot. Any suggestions? I'm trying to repair a xbox 360 Head set, by the way.

Sorry, this iron will not do the job. Yes the temp is higher than the solder, but once you touch it to the work, the heat is gone in Aluminim as it conducts heat at a very high rate. You need more wattage AND the upper heat level. A flame powered tool might be more appropriate. Contact Weller on their web site for recomendation

Got a question for the community, i am looking at buying a sodering iron, for working on cb radios and i have found one that seems to fit the bill and my pocket book, it is a 40watt pencil tip sodder


40 Watts is pretty powerful and will do what you need. However if it doesn't have any temperature control it may be too powerful. I use a 25 Watt electric soldering iron and it does everything I ever wanted in electronics. The danger of using an iron that is too hot is that it could heat components and solder beside where you want the heat.

If it's a gas operated soldering iron it's probably ok since ratings on gas irons are only estimates. Gas soldering irons are handy for working away from mains power, like in your car, however many of them tend to work great when new but after a few months they start to run out of gas very quickly probably possibly because they develop a leak. If you're only buying one I'd say get an electric 25 Watt one.

How to solder Aluminium and Copper


To solder aluminum and a copper wire? You do not need any special tools or equipment - just use the standard soldering iron, traditional SnPb solder, grease (lubricant) and sandpaper.
Apply grease to the soldered aluminum surface, regrind this "greasy" surface with sandpaper so excite the surface layer of aluminum oxide (Al2O3). Grease prevent air going to the purified aluminum and its rapid re-oxidation to the Al2O3 and lets to adhere molten SnPb solder to aluminum. Once the aluminum surface is covered with a layer of SnPb solder ("tinned"), clean it with a degreasing agent out of grease and may be normal solder to another "solder-tinned" material - for example, a copper wire.

Whats the little cup thing on top of the battery in a iso-tip soldering iron and is it glued on to that black thing with wires on or soldered ?


The cup thing allows thermal transfer to black thing which when gets hot trips switch adding resisters lowering charge current to trickle not to overcharge battery. Then red led lights, and is reset by pushing white slide towards bottom base. It is not glued it is pressure fit on bottom of black thermal switch and has a little thermal grease like heat sink compound. Should come apart if you pull hard enough maybe need to use pliers.

Having trouble with solder sticking with metal to metal applications


Soldering is intended for soldering alloys together such as copper, silver, gold....solder does not stick well to steel and aluminum...also, you need to use a flux when soldering...this flux cleans the connections of impurities and allows the solder to stick to the metals to be joined...Judging by the iron that you have...it looks like it is mainly used for very small soldering applications where not too much heat is required...If you want to solder larger items(such as soldering to a metal chassis) then I would recommend using a soldering iron or soldering gun with more wattage

That is normal for a soldering gun especially if you are using acid core solder. I do a lot of soldering with rosin core & have to change the tip about every 6-8 months. Just get a couple of new tips. Rick
