    I have a soldering work station I would like to modify so I can plug my various soldering guns into it (only 1 at a time) Will an 1/8" mono phone jack (solder type) handle a 50 watt ac soldering gun? Along the same vain will RC plugs work for the same thing as well?

    Possibly but I would use 1/4" jacks just because they are much more robust in all aspects...

    I personally would use a more secure jack like the screw in ones used on professional solder stations, or even an XLR style jack that locks in place as found in pro audio stuff...
