The top one is a 25 watt and should be used for all PC board soldering. The larger 45-watt iron is used for soldering chassis grounds and large-wire connector lugs. Figure 1-47 is of a soldering gun and it only heats when the trigger switch is pulled on. These guns will heat up in about five seconds and usually are high wattage. They should not be used for soldering on PC boards because you can damage one very quickly. Many of these guns are rated a 100 to 150 watts. Figure 1-48 shows how a small iron is used to solder in the pins of an IC.

A digital multimeter is being used in Fig. 1-44. You will find more power-supply information and circuits plus troubleshooting tips in other chapters of this book.
