    So I have come unto an irritating problem. My desoldering iron from Radioshack doesn't appear to have replacement tips that taper into an actual point. all their tips have a hole in the center so that I can suck out molten solder.
    I basically need a really fine point soldering iron / tip. However, I don't want to buy anything that hasn't been used by one of the other Portablizers before. What model soldering iron do you guys use for those tiny 34+ guage wire connections?
    While we're at it, what model/brand/type of solder and magnet wire have you all been using? What tools do you use to expose traces without breaking them (aside from lightly scratching with a razor)?
