Re: Soldering Irons

My favourite is the old Maplin one on the left, it may take a few minutes to heat up, but it's so consistent, I just know it will do what I ask of it. I've actually got the same one!

My Stuff: Hot_Stuff.jpg My favourite is the old Maplin one on the left, it may take a few minutes to heat up, but it's so consistent, I just know it will do what I ask of it.

Re: Floppy Support

Just as a little bit of extra info, these print fine at .2mm, but at .1mm had some very fine stringing, and I know that exxos also had some print problems including stringing too. .2mm is fine for most scenarios, but if you try to print finer and get stringing, then dropping the filament temp should...

Re: ASP34-2 - Looking a bit burnt

I have seen a lot worse though! (My Uncle was a TV repairman back in the days of valves and CRTs, and phenolic P...
