Abstract

The tip accessory efficiently applies evenly distributed heat in the required amounts to circuit pins mounted on substrates and to the circuit pattern. Tip 10, drawing A, is provided with threads 12 which permit use with any soldering iron that uses threaded, interchangeable tips. The opposite end has a longitudinally extending cavity 14. As shown in B, sector 16 is cut from cavity 14 which facilitates positioning of the tip about a pin and also insertion of solder. Flat end surface 18 is adapted to conduct heat to the circuit pattern and minimize the possibility of heat damage to the substrate. The hollow tip structure provides a more even distribution of heat and a resultant greater longevity as compared with a solid tip construction.
