    Hi guys

    I hope you can help me. I need to change the tip on my Weller WS 81
    soldering iron. I've always had the one that came with it, which is round
    and pointy.

    Should I get another one like it, or get one with a small flat surface near
    the tip(chiesel?)?

    There's a list here.

    The one I'm thinking about is the WE-LTF 1.2mm. Is that small enough
    for fine electronics, maybe even surface mount?

    Any advice will be greatly appriciated ! :)

    Thanks

    Nicholas

    Yes, I would say to buy an assortment.
    Exactly what size....would be determined by your project.;)

    Don't worry, you'll never have TOO many tips.
