I use a Weller 8200 gun and make my own tips from 10 gauge copper wire. The tips last for about 3 radio restorations until they need to be replaced.

I'm impressed by the practicality of this approach. Even though I'm done with solder guns, I do similar things every day---using material and widgets in ways the inventor would never have imagined


I refuse to be impressed until I read a claim by Kestas that he hammers the round wire into a square like the factory tips. :wink:

Consider yourself partly impressed. I hammer a flat where the bend is made for the tip.
