Default Re: KT88 construction problem

Dear Guys,
Thanks for the advice. I found that generally I was able to get good joints with the Antex and silver solder but the bit had to be clean and given time to get good and hot and (as you have found out) when I rushed things some didn't work out right. In hindsight the Antex was better suited to the printed circuit boards and trnasistors I was dealing with when I bought it. It reminds me that when I 'helped' my dad to build a Heathkit amplifier when I was about 5 years old his soldering iron was a Henley Solon 25 watt.
Plus ca change ..., was they say in French.
Best wishes,
