    Truth! I learned this the hard way. Even with rosin core solder, I still flux that shit.

    I must've gone through 3 or 4 of those cheap radioshack and crafstman soldering irons, and numerous replacement tips, till it hit me that maybe I should work on my soldering skillz get a real station:

    Weller WLC100

    Despite my shit soldering, I've been on the same tip through half a dozen jobs now. And it's still nice and shiny.

    MINES TOTAL SHIT! I got a battery powered Weller, cause I thought it would be convenient, but NOPE! ABSOLUTELY NOT! Eh I'll buy a better one later, good recommendations? Needs to be cheap and easy to use, and not to big either
