I found a soldering iron that was still in its package in my garage. It's a 25 Watt Weller.
Where's the best place to buy a dremmel and a desoldering iron? Home Depot?
Also, whats the best solder to use for modding?
You can get a Dremel most places that sell tools. I'd check prices online at Amazon and such. I personally bought mine at Walmart because I had a gift card or something similar, so yeah.
Desoldering IRONS aren't needed as much as pumps. You can get a little hand desoldering pump at your nearest Radio Shack for like 5 bucks.
Get a thin solder, and not silver solder, as it melts at a much higher temperature and a beginning modder would more easily damage temperature-sensitive components using this. Get a thinner gauge solder with a rosin core. It just makes soldering a bit easier. I would also suggest getting flux by itself in addition to getting rosin core solder. You can get your flux/solder at Radio Shack or Fry's or a place similar.
