  • Great stuff, wish they'd provide it in cyan, magenta, and yellow. Then you could mix it to make any color. Also I did get one packet I'd describe as lumpy, wasn't usable, but the other of the same color (orange) is fine (casting earplugs right now).

  • Just an update, the sponge has managed to stay wet for 12 hours. Perfect for a day of soldering :)

  • Also I picked one of these up, great iron. Unfortunately not from sparkfun, shipping to Canada was $50 and I got it locally for $100 with free shipping.

    The tip it comes with is a little large for what I need, but good for replacing some large mosfets on a UPS I'm repairing (my weller just didn't have the power).

    The well under the sponge is neat, it keeps the sponge wet much longer.

    But ya, Hear are some pics: Hakko

  • Anyone interested in internal pics?

  • Shipping price is a little ridicules if you're trying to ship it out of the states. Note to sparkfun, if you can make it fit in a 12x12x5-1/2" (max 20lb) box shipping would only be $35.

  • I second that.

  • BioGlass has nothing to do with implantation.
    Standard glass is inert and wont cos rejection.
    This tag can be safely implanted as long as you do it right.
    It has a vary short read range less then half an inch. So unless the reader was actually touching you they couldn't get the pascode.

  • Just wanted to let you know that smart-cards and SIM cards are the same (other then the plastic on the outside and the data stored) so you can combine this with a $3 SIM writer off of eBay.

  • Hey I'm thinking of buying one, but I'd like to know. How bright is it, I'm thinking of using it on a buggy to show fuel, tack, and speed. So it will be vibrating around in bright sunlight. My question is, will it be legible?

No public wish lists :(
