So 310 celsuis would be what? 590 F, right? I'll lower it to 590 F and see how that works. I had it set a bit high for desoldering and just never set it back. Thanks!

i use 310 for everything other than low-temperature soldering with 5% silver solder.

Thanks! I'll give it a shot later. I usually was using 600F for the soldering when I was using the silver stuff and then 650 when I was desoldering. I'll give the 590F (310C) a shot and see how well that works.

I tried the 590F (310C) and it worked but took a bit longer to melt the solder. Is there any dangers to using a higher temp? When I set it to 630F (332C), that seemed to work the best.

10 boards down, two more to go!!!! Then I just need to find some solderable flat pieces of metal to attach them all together.

to find the best temps, look at the datasheets for the solder & flux.
