When to Use Each Different Type of Soldering Tip

Soldering irons have lots of different tips, and each of them is better suited for different tasks. However, which tips are best suited for what isn't always obvious, so Instructables user JColvin91 breaks down the best uses for each.

JColvin91 talks about five different styles of tips, ranging from a standard general-purpose tip to more specialised needle-point tips. Each interacts with solder and components a bit differently. For example, one wedge-shaped tip is better for applying a small amount of solder over multiple components, whereas another is best for larger areas. If you're new to soldering or you're just curious what all those tips are best for, head over to Instructables.
