I have a crappy soldering iron, i think its at 25W and takes forever to heat surfaces. What I've been doing is just holding the iron tip on the wire on the pot, and i push the solder wire between the tip and the pot and it melts and sticks. Is this bad?

it's okay as long as it ends up shiny.

and a 25W iron shouldn't take that long to heat up...

mhm i woudl do this.

turn on soldering iron.

wait a while, then tin the tip w/ solder.
if you can tin the tip easily, then its hot enough.
if not wait.

then, when using it ... do not use the tip, but use the coned part. (tilt the iron, instead of head on)
