 {{rb:​gas-soldering-iron.jpg?​100 |Gas powered soldering iron}}The solution turned out to be a butane gas powered iron. With the catalyst attachment and a bevel tip end, I was able to make good soldered joints and as a bonus, I could use the hot gas exhaust vent on the iron to shrink the heat-shrink sleeving covering each pin. This needs to be pointed out, the hot gas escaping from the side of the iron is hot enough to damage the PVC insulation on the cable, and also to cause a burn to fingers in the way. {{rb:​gas-soldering-iron.jpg?​100 |Gas powered soldering iron}}The solution turned out to be a butane gas powered iron.
