Thanks for the clarification. I think i understand now the whole subject.  I didn't know there were such big issues with bugs in the firmware...
Which soldering irons do you use / are supported by the firmware?
Maybe i'll have to take a look into how to build the firmware from source to compile my own version which includes only my 3 irons (but no others). That's something i am afraid of - cause i'm too old for this shit  :o ...
There was. And i was happy to see some development years after this project started. Too bad it came to a halt. But it was good to see some improvements.
at this time I have 105, NT115A , PA120A tweezers , T210A , AN105A tweezers, DR560A, T245A

I had to throw out half and leave only those that are used in my station
Irons[10] doesn't has to be of 10 elements, array scanning code uses sizeof() so just drop size specifier and use unknown size array.

I already shared the front and back graphics ;) :

The case is a BZ1311 preamp chassis i've found on Aliexpress:

You have to look around a bit to find a seller with the best combined item+shipment price for your area (because some sell the item pretty cheap, but have horrible shipping costs).

It's still not the cheapest, but a very well produced all aluminum case. I've only replaced the front with a custom 3mm aluminum plate (instead of the 6mm plate it comes with) since i wanted the usb socket flush with the front, which wasn't possible with the 6mm plate.

I've had uploaded the files to an image hoster.  Seems like the thumbnails didn't work for now. Try quoting my posting and you should see the links to the *.png files. Those still work.

No... not very stable. I've tested my 280°C and 320°C presets - it always quickly and continuously fluctuates between ±5-20°C above/below the selected temperature.
