you can get the tips on walmart web site with other tip styles so looks like others use this tip ‘system’

tips are the razor blades of a soldering iron

but a 30 day warranty and the prominence of the RISC word on web site makes me very concerned  <g>

but (not a joke) wonder if any of the others have a better iron body as it looks like others may use this same tip in the same form factor

i did not trace the tips i saw online back to the various products using them so this might be the best implementation - so of course you must waste 6 hours doing research...

but thanks for the link 

i can’t find tips for the weller iron i had for this function , and it is small but AC powered
