Re: Vortex problems...

Is it realy a pot? Or a switch?

Thats not really hot. If you touch the unit and the iron before using, you
are almost done. If you want more security, connect the ground of the iron
to the ground of the machine. Then it is important to to touch a
disconnected pin of a connected chip, but thats hard to happen anyway.
In all those years of soldering I did not manage to destroy anything with
static charge, and I was not very carefull.

Dont give up too quickly :-)
