I saw the tip in the other thread where you posted a pic. I have looked around and found a solution for ya, gets really hot, heats pretty much instantly, and I believe you can get it with a holster option for quick soldering jobs!!

My Uncle was a TV repairman in the 70s & 80s and used one of these, a Weller as I recall. I was fascinated by it. He also bought me my first soldering iron, which I actually still own, though it doesn't get used anymore :)
Collector of old Atari things:
800XL + Ape Warp mod, 2x 1010 cassette, 1050 + Happy mod, 65XE (128k) & XC12, SIO2SD, 2600jr, 7800 and Lynx II
Atari 520ST (1Meg) + Gotek, 1040STFM + Vortex ATOnce + Gotek, 1040STF long button floppy, 4160 STE with Gotek and ROM switcher, 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher and CosmosEx, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..
Amiga stuff, Mac stuff, Sinclair stuff etc...
