    To all those who may be concerned:
    I placed a new thread under "General Talk" which will be the teachings of proper soldering and so on. I hope that everyone approves and that I might be able to help you with your questions.

    The first and foremost rule is keep the tip of the iron tinned and CLEAN. A wet sponge (wring it out by hand) is a good way to keep the tip clean. I am a big fan of iron clad tips - they hold a "tinn" better and last longer.

    I stuck my foot in my mouth big time and asked for that thread to locked before I started a war that was uncalled for.
    Injector- to you I apologize for my uncalled for remark. Please forgive me.

    Tonight I was informed of the passing of my father, As soon as things are taken care of here I will get started on the new thread.

    So everyone please bear with me

    As they say, it's something that I'll just have to learn to live with. Now, if I only had the nack of being able to sweet talk the ladies like he could, I would be in hog heaven!
    I miss him very much.
