40watt iron is sufficient, never had a problem using other pots

Only use a 40 watt plus for the earth's on a pot or switch.

15 for the tangs.

Yes it is! Glad you got it sorted. Wink

Not going into an in depth debate about heat disbursement.Any electrical components worst enemy.

As your already an expert at 'frying' pots by your own admission.

Just that I've been using this method for over 35 years and never 'fried' a pot

The large iron is 80 watts and solders pots instantly with only local heat to the point I wish to solder.

The small one is 16 watt and is used for the tangs and small switches.

Just my choice of tools. Which I don't refer to as nonsense. Neither is a 40 watt iron but it just makes things a wee bit harder. In my opinion.



AND IF ALL ELSE FAILS.

2 fried pots out of about 100 tells me its not the iron but the particular brand of pot, which was my original point!
Yes your point stands but the issue here is the cheap Chinese pots Warman uses..... Surely?

Those little pots are crap and fiddly.

You want to see the size of the pots on Warwick basses. Tiny hi- fi quality stuff. Little square things.
