Question about Weller 8200 Soldering Gun
My Weller 8200 soldering gun is over 30 years old. Lately, the tips erode, then burn through is a very short time. I tin the tips regularly. The gun's case has been broken & repaired several times & I have resoldered the connections of the windings to the switch several times. I am using Radio Shack tips because they are low cost-$3 for 2 tips vs. $7 at for 1 at a hardware store. Should I continue to keep this old gun or is there a fix?
That fixed it.Thanks.

It's better to get a soldering station instead.

Do NOT attempt to tap out or enlarge the threads. Weller uses special nuts, you can buy a new tip WITH replacement nuts. If you buy the new tip without nuts, you are supposed to bend the two ends 90 degrees, so they fit into the holes in the two cylinders. The tips which are iron-plated will last longer.
