Weller suggests using tip tinner as the first step when a soldering tip becomes unusable. The polishing bar should only be used as a last resort when the tip tinner is not effectively cleaning the working surface of the tip.

Note: This is the final Weller soldering tip.

Weller Soldering Tip # 8

Weller Tip Tinners Tip tinners can cause premature degradation of tips when used too often. The aggressive nature of the fluxes used in tip tinners can contribute to short life expectancy of tips. Use tip tinners/activators when a tip is beginning to exhibit signs of non-wetting, but do not use them to repeatedly re-tin the tips.  Many companies use tip tinner in a controlled tool crib environment where tip maintenance can be performed properly without inflicting unnecessary damage to the tip.
