20yrs ago , when I started the fabric work on my aeroplane , that was exactly the advice I got from my Inspector. With the temp. set to 'Wool' .
The fabric I used was Dacron-Polyester from ACS&S and it worked a treat .
No need to buy an 'aviation quality' iron , or one in daft arty-farty colours which you fill with water and keeps making irritating peeping noises , just the most basic one you can find .
The pointed end is actually very useful , for getting into corners and for smoothing down any doggy-eared bits of the edging tape .
