Ever have a night where it just ain't meant to be? This an' that was keeping me from the shop earlier- then I slipped and almost busted my butt running from house to my shop in the rain. Then, get some tunes going, and the iron fired up and make a bit of progress- grab the iron to make the next joint and it's cold. No amount of fiddling or replacing the tip fixed it. Dang soldering station has taken a dump. Not in the mood to tear apart a soldering station and troubleshoot it, I just shut down the shop and came back inside. I'll grab a $7 walmart soldering iron tomorrow. I used them for 30 years before buying a temp controlled station. Probably got 5 of them around, but couldn't lay a hand on one if my life depended on it. No biggie- just one of them days! At least the local classic rock station is on point tonight.
