Yeah, one old trick with a soldering gun, is to wrap a piece of 314 solid copper wire around the tip as a soldering iron tip "Extension". Not near as good as a quality temperature regulated 40 watt soldering iron, but with a bit of practice, will work out well.

Retired and the days are just too short, busier than ever!
