Day 134: Take two and three
I bought a Diehard 10/2 Amp charger at Sears on the way home from lunch today. I was a little more careful taking it apart because it's new and might want to restore it to the original function or to return it if things don't work out. I hooked everything up and immediately melted one of my burning tips. Even on the 2 amp setting with the dimmer all the way down the tip was nearly melting.
I also received a a 6 Amp charger from my Grandfather and hooked it up tonight. I think I'll end up going with this one for the time being. It seems to be a little more controlable and seems to have plenty of power but we'll see when I get some heavier guage nichrome.
