Drip for now, though I hate it. I'd love to get a gun, just not in the cards at the moment.
I do have Tognars ptex soldering iron with the wide tip, and some strings of ptex - The problem is that it seems to take a good deal of heat to get the ptex anywhere beyond unusable sticky goop, and I'm terrified I'm going to get too much heat near the rest of the base... Tips? suggestions?
