Make it a school project and get the tools and suplies from the shop teacher.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-03-05 AT 05:48 PM (EST)]Well it seems I've got the soldering iron blues.

I've found a cheap one on ebay. Can you tell me if you think it'll do the job and if it'll also stand for other projects?

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-03-05 AT 07:26 PM (EST)]30W is more power than you need for most projects. A 15W pencil iron will do for your doorbell buzzer pickup and most things you'd do on printed circuit boards. A 25W is what I use for wiring up tube amps with point-to-point wiring. Got a Radio Shack nearby? They've got 'em pretty reasonable. (You've got to add shipping to that eBay one.)

Don't forget to get solder! You want rosin-core electronic solder. Never use plumbing solder, acid-core solder or paste flux.

No need to ask, just listen to "Among the Leaves." That's through a Roland Microcube amp, and they don't call that "micro" for nothing.

Thanks for all the replies. And yes, I did notice that CBG had one strong tone to it.
