EEVblog #242 – Hakko FX-888 Soldering Iron Hack

Dave has posted another excellent video blog, this one a hack he did on a Hakko FX-880 soldering iron.  The hack is interesting because he solves a design problem  and explains in detail the circuit he uses.  It's a worthwhile watch to see his methodology in problem solving.  It's good to note that his solutions don't always work out, but he analyzes the results and adapts.

Very cool. My FX-888 works really well and I love it. However, I do always second guess myself as I leave the room. "Did I shut it off? I better check"

I have always thought it was "backwards" how the light turns on when it heats but didn't put much thought into it. His videos are awesome to learn from but I don't think I'll tear mine apart yet... We'll see.
