Upgrade your Hakko with a new tip, you'll get better & faster solder joints and the whole process will be much more enjoyable. This tip fits the FX-888 analog and digital irons, and they're fast to swap, takes only 30 seconds to change out. All the tips are good for either lead or lead free (simply set the iron to the temperature required for the solder you are using).
This is a wide "Screwdriver" tip, great for thru-hole soldering or big SMT parts, especially big stuff you need to heat up fast or that have a heat-sink attached. It's 150% wider than the tip that comes by default on the FX-888
