Question about Black & Decker Black Decker Dualtemp Soldering Craft Iron CI500S
I've been using the B&D soldering iron, and after a little while, I noticed that my tip was getting smaller and smaller - I think it's corroding away. It's now down to a little nub. What am I doing wrong?
I clean off the tip on a moistened paper towel, and I tried to cover the tip in solder before putting it away, but it won't always stick.
I use this for crafting, and use lead-free solder, and been using different types of flux. I also typically have the iron on for about 1-2 hours at a time, if that's significant.
Thanks for any help!
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

Do not overheat the tip!try to adjust the temperature at 390c maximum for leaded solder or 410c max for lead free.if your gun is not automatic try to push the trigger as needs for soldering not continuously!try a cadmium type tip those tips are better tha the nickeltips!
