Default Soldering Iron

I'm about to take on building a megasquirt, and my soldering iron sucks, and will need to be replaced. What did you use?

I got mine from Radio Shack for ~$20. I think its a 40watt. Plenty of power.

You'll want a really small tip one, ~15 watt otherwise you'll have a tough time w/ the transistors. I used crapshack PN 64-2051B.

I use a Weller adjustable soldering station with a fine tip, it's only 40$ at Frys, I won't even touch any of that radioshack crap...

those are nice, if you can get one of the professional models used on ebay they're even better.
