Use Shape D

This type has a shape like a flat-blade screwdriver and is capable of soldering by applying the tip in 2 ways: line and face. It is available for any works.

Use it for point soldering.

PTH

1. Put the tip end to the land pad and PTH at one time to heat them.
2. Feed solder to form smooth fillet on the land pad.
Use it for point soldering.
