  • To answer my own question,this stuff seems to melt quite nicely at about 375 degrees centigrade. I got the idea from watching the intro video to the Open Tricorder Project (http://www.tricorderproject.org/). It’s possible that it’ll work fine at some other setting, but behaves how I expect solder to behave when set to 375.

  • Or the Sparkfun Soldering station (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10707)?

    I realize that this is a difficult question to answer, and the number changes based on the size of the components being soldered, but a guideline for appropriate use would be lovely. I’m not an experienced solderer. I’ve reached that “knows enough to make more interesting mistakes” level of skill, and good data on appropriate temperatures for specific solders is extremely difficult to track down.

No public wish lists :(
