Ouch!

I love my Weller 100 soldering irons. Recently though, there was a recall on them. I called the company and was told that one of them qualified for the recall, the other one didn't. I packed up the 'bad' one (which worked great) and kept the 'good' one (which I explained didn't work well anymore). Yesterday I was soldering my head off when POP! I got a huge shock through my hand and up my elbow....
Meanwhile - since I was told that the replacement iron for the 'good' one I sent back will take 4 weeks, I ordered a different brand that should be here in a few days.... don't worry if you have an order in with me. It will just be delayed a couple of days. Thanks for understanding!
Today seems like a safe day to work with cement... I think I'll make some "babbling bricks".
