A 50W thermostatically-controlled iron will be far safer to PCBs than a 35W uncontrolled firestick.

ok im an idiot. i wired the V+ and the pg+ backwards
but luckily i fixed it and it still works going to wire the pot as wildman noted right now. hope it works. i should get my dang camera by tuesday i hope. ebayer is lagging. but as soon as i do ill post picks. came out pretty decent i think. billet aluminum case with phenolic rear pannel with all the connectors int he rear and the noble pot in the front left. nice and small. hope there isnt issues with everything right next to each other.

Default Re: What Iron is too hot for BrianGT's PCBs?

If I turn the heat all the way down do ya'll think it will work well sodering PCBs? Or should I buy a new iron rated lower for this Weller WES51?...
A solder station is way over the top for this, but I guess the temp control is nice . Sure it'll do. I'm not sure about the temperature, I believe 350C is OK, but then again I might be completely wrong and it should be 500C. I'm sure someone here will tell you what a good temp is .

Ya sort of. I had a 15W "fire Stick" :-) and it just wasn't cutting it on my earlier PCB test/learning sodering. Guess I went a bit far in the other direction.

Yes! I suppose that's what I need to know.
What is a good temp to use for my Weller on PCBs?

Default I found a thread about Iron Temps

Iron Temps Thread
Soldering temperatures (resistors, caps, transistors)

Please comment more if you feel so compelled.

Does any one know anything about this transformer? Will it work in a gainclone? How do I measure it (if I need to, that is)? It is out of a subwoofer amp (first picture; there's no picture of amp. I don't know how to attach more than one picture).

Black wire is V+ and red is V- and purple and green (or maybe just green?) are for each of the channels. These are just my guesses, does any one know the correct wiring?

In my opinion the green and blue pairs are the primaries, and the red-yellow-red the secondaries.

Measure for continuity between them. The black ones maybe a shield.

With a DMM set for resistance you should be able to get them identified.

red-yellow-red have continuity between all three and all the pairs have continuity between each pair. On the sub amp PCB the black wires are labeled as "primary1" and "primary2." The black wires go to the plug in the sub amp. I don't have a DMM (just analog multimeter; measures only Kohm), can it be determined without one?
