I am trying to design a soldering iron type of tool that will not heat-up past, lets just say 400 degrees F. I know I can get a PID controller and manipulate the temp, but I'd JUST like the unit to ...
Creating a low (90-250F) temperature-controlled soldering iron (or modifying a higher temp one to get lower temps)
I'm a wax sculptor and am interested in getting a temperature controlled soldering iron but I need a very low temperature range (like 100-250F). Most units come with a bottom end of 350F+. Is there a ...
I see lots and lots of builds of "temperature controlled iron" that simply either: adds a timer to an uncontrolled iron adds a dimmer to an uncontrolled iron The first is the same as turning on ...
I have an NVIDIA GeForce 7300LE graphics card that's having problems (see here), and I heard about baking the card to restore old solder joints. The thing is, this involves putting the card in the ...
I have read many website and forums about DIY reflow ovens for SMT soldering. I have also seen many solder profiles as specified by the solder manufacturers, component manufacturers, and other ...
I recently purchased a Weller WES51 soldering iron as my first temperature controlled iron and I'm looking for recommendations on the best default temperature to use when soldering. I'm using mainly ...
