I have a 40w variable heat soldering station, and the soldering iron has a chisel-point iron tip. The iron tip doesn't corrode as fast as a copper tip. I keep a bottle of Baker's Fluid (zinc chloride) for tip cleaning and heavy duty flux jobs, but it isn't good for electronics flux because the fumes (HCl) are corrosive.

A de-soldering pen is also handy.

I have a couple of bigger irons, but I don't need to use them very often.
