I used a simple weller station Iron. I can weld metal too but plastic is 
much simplier.
It is not difficult you must get some feeling with the plastic so it will 
melt together. To hot the plastic will 'burn out' Not really flames but the 
chemical structere changed. Then it will break soon.
Too cold, you only stick it together and it will become loose some day. If 
you try it you see it quick enough.
