Default What to use ??

sponsored links

 
Hiya,
I bought a brand new soldering iron yesterday (40w/230volts ac) along with some solder wire(aloy 60/40 - dia 1.mm).

Last night i tried it out for the first time but the iron doesnt want to know about the wire, it just burns stairght through the stuff

Am i using to thin wire ?? The nib of the iron im using comes to a point, not like some that look like a screwdriver. Could this be my problem ???

Sorry if this all seems a bit to dumb to you, but ill get there eventually

40w? are you crazy? that's TOO hot. use an iron somewhere from 15-30 watts. You will mess up your board if you leave the iron on it too long.
