There are normally three of the same type. They are consumable, you don't need to stock all the different types - just buy the one you need for your current project.

Note, these are high power and were commonly used for soldering wires in the point-to-point wiring used in old tube electronics. Do not use this on a Printed circuit board - it will damage any silicon component.

Use a a soldering pencil for printed circuit boards.

SOURCE: the weller 8200n does notheat up

Tighten tips a lot and buy a new one every six months. Seems they work great for a short time and then fail. Of course on the side of the gun it cleary states "For intermitent use only"

Is there a manual for this tool - I just got it but it did not have a manual and I have never used a sodering gun before. Or is there a good website with instructions. Thanks

There are several websites that teach you how to use the tool including tips. you can go to weller .com the most important tip is once its plugged in and depending on the soldering gun. some are activated by a trigger and some are not, handle the tip with care because it gets extremely hot and can cause injury if one is not careful. if the tip is hot keep it away from anything that can ignite or flammable materials. its a good tool for making permanant wire splices, used in conjunction with tinned solder and flux. not recommended for doing pc board repair because of the extreme head produced. can also be used to shrink tubing around wire splices. good luck!

I just bought the soldering gun but the instructions on the package aren't very useful how do i use the gun?

A soldering gun is used much the same as a soldering iron for melting solder mainly to connect electronic components to circuit boards. To use it you plug it into the electricity mains and press the trigger. This causes the metal tip to heat up. Allow a minute or so for it to reach full heat and press it to the components you want to solder together. When they heat up press the solder against them. The solder melts and runs on and between them forming a bond. Remove the soldering iron and release the trigger. Once the trigger is released the gun starts to cool down again.

If you've used a soldering iron before you'll probably find the gun more awkward as it cools down every time you release the trigger. It's really only useful for quick jobs where you're not going to need it every few minutes. For other jobs where a lot of soldering is involved a soldering iron is better. The advantage the soldering gun has over the soldering iron is that it heats much faster for quick jobs.

I bought the gun years ago and never used it. Now I need to solder my eyeglasses frame and have no idea ho to do it. How do I start? It's a dual 140/100 watt gun

Often the material used for eyeglass frames will NOT take solder.
If you want to try soldering you likely will need a flux that has zinc chloride. You should probably use a harder solder like StayBrite. You put some flux on the joint which needs to be held fixed while soldering. You heat the joint with the soldering tip and apply a little of the solder. One should "tin" or wet the tip before using by applying flux to the tip and melting a little solder on it. Search YouTube as someone probablly has a video on soldering.
