  • I came up with a solution to the issue of the iron coming into contact with the shield when in the stand. It turns out it’s only slightly touching it, so if the shield were a bit higher it would not come in contact. I did this by unscrewing it, getting a pair of longer bolts and adding 7 washers on each side. this raises the shield so it no longer contacts the iron. Problem solved.
    It was a slight pain to get everything to stay so I started by taping the bolts in place on the underside, then adding the washers while upright and then putting in the shield. Then one by one, I dropped a nut in place, untaped the bolt and drove it home. Worked pretty well…

  • Can anyone tell me if this board can connect to the FIO board? Do the holes line up?

No public wish lists :(
