you don't need an expensive Iron, just get a good TIP.. and it will do most of the small jobs..

You only want to buy the expensive gear if it's ur livelihood.. otherwise, the cost is not justified..


If you do decide on a desoldering pump, like a really really ghetto one, at least make sure it's spring loaded, and lubricate the moving parts before use.. It should work fine as long as it's well lubed.

Is a 40W iron sufficient? How do I know which tips are good? Are there different sizes of tips? Will I ever stop asking questions?

Yes 40W is sufficient

The good tips costs more.. go with a name brand, and it should be fine for your use.

Different size tips for different jobs.

I prefer a small chisel tip for most stuff...
