Hello, all. I’m considering purchasing an electric soldering
machine–am hoping for some Orchid input to tip the scale one way or
another. How does such a machine handle heat-dispersion between
dramatically different densities? What I mean: in the past I’ve had
problems soldering very fine wire to more solid cast
components–couldn’t build up enough heat in the solid part to draw
the solder down; it balled up and jumped up the very hot wires–or,
worse, the wires and/or other finer parts of the piece melted. Would
an electric soldering machine get around this problem? Could I use
it to attach very fine components to larger more solid one(s)?
[Pssst–Sandra, my insect-friend, this will prob. interest you,
too…] I’d be very grateful for any testimonials/guidance. Thanks!
