I've been using a cheap pistol grip type soldering iron (no trigger - you plug it in, its on, you unplug it, its off) for stuff like replacing P/S fans and wiring case fans. I tell you that, so you know the thickness of the wire I'm soldering. I find this cheap soldering iron to be barely adequate for the job. It takes about 20-30 seconds to heat up this type of wire so its hot enough to accept the solder. I want to try recapping the bad motherboards (of which I have a ton), but this thing is simply inadequate for the job. I can't spend 5 or 10 minutes desoldering each capacitor (BTW-one of my buddies has done this and advises you use a solder wick rather than a solder sucker)! So my question is whats a good soldering iron for work like replacing P/S fans AND desoldering electronic components.
