Soldering Iron Driver v1.5 assembled and enclosed

Posted on Tuesday, May 29th, 2012 in builds by DP

Pjkim assembled his Soldering Iron Driver v1.5 free PCB and enclosed it into some Tupperware. He had some problems with the firmware, but he eventually got it to work as intended.

The LCD works, the iron gets hot and I can solder stuff with it! What do you call the first functioning of a soldering iron? First solder? First smoke? First joint?

Will have a more thorough writeup and more pics on my blog soon. And thank you Arhi and Arakis. And Ian too.

If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer.

Via the forum.

    That’s no Tupperware! Looks more like a 500g box of Gochujang :-)

    Excellent idea though!

      That is correct! I posted this in the forum and was not expecting it to go first page. I planned to take some more pics, do a build writeup and then do the big “reveal.” Oh well.
