Subtitled: On Hiatus
My new Weller WES-51 (from back in October) was finally used for the first time on Monday. It functioned for all of 2 hours or so. I believe a faulty transformer is to blame.
I followed the directions for troubleshooting the device up to the point where I sliced an inch-long gash in my thumb with a blunt screwdriver.
I no longer have a soldering iron and am not yet comfortable typing with my left thumb, let alone assembling circuitry.
It seems I should have taken Paul’s advice more closely to heart.
So I guess, stay tuned?
