    I am trying to change the tip on my pencil type soldering iron because it's not getting as hot as it used to.

    I have loosened every screw but the tip won't come off.

    It it connected to the power cord or just held in by a single screw ?

    I loosened the screw on my iron and the tip came off.

    If that didn't help you, you might be more descriptive.
    Which make/model/tip??

    sometimes it's retained by corrosion and friction after the fastenings
    are loosened

    Is this a brand-name one or a cheap one?

    I am glad that i knew better than to use my crystal ball on this request.
    The last time i tried to ask if for unknown make and model for an unknown
    poster it went totally cloudy and took a bunch of time and expensive
    advanced spell casting to repair.

    If you can't be bothered to give us a fighting chance to help you why did
    you bother asking?
