you want to make the iron hot enough to melt the wax but not have it be smokey, thats usually the general rule. most times the wax will tell you what temp to set ur iron at

240 degree is good. I usually put mine right at 120 celsius, which is 248 fahrenheit.

How hot to set your iron will depend on each individual iron. I have to set the wal-mart cheapy up to almost the highest setting in order for it to stay hot enough to heat up the board.
