Umm, OK. Mine is probably 20+ years old, and it looks like the tip is made of copper. Anyway it was covered with that green coppery stuff until I scotchbrited it the first time. This thing is so old the handle is made out of some type of ceramic stuff, not plastic. Anyone have any Idea how old this thing is?

i've never heard about tip coatings... i always clean my tips with 1200grit glasspaper before tinning them thoroughly. seems to work fine with my 25w weller iron.

The sandpaper or Scotchbright trick works well on plain old copper tips. As AidanII pointed out, it will damage many of the modern coated tips. If you are using a good Weller iron, save the abrasive until the coating wears out. BTW, I'm cheap, I use a damp paper towel to clean my irons tip.

Not cheap, frugal
