Re: What soldering Gun and Solder?

Hate to disappoint anybody but 60/40 .75mm diameter is still widely available and advertized. Maybe in the future but some places you see a whimis sheet but not in all of them. For electronic work (small) I use a 25/30 watt iron. Heavy work either my 100/140 gun or torch.
If you are having trouble soldering the small connectors then there could be a number of reasons. My connectors I clamp the soldering iron in the vice and hold the wire and connector. Pretin both items and you should have no problems with enough heat to make the solder flow. To much heat where it goes crystally then you have to reclean and startover. Also I use a wet sponge and a brass scouring pad in a cutoff pop bottle. Steal one of your wifes as it will last a while but get a new one with no soap or anything in it. Just my way of doing it as I hate chasing the parts across the table or burning holes in it and I do a lot.
