Day 339: New burner
4 screws are removed and the case is opened. The modifications are fairly minor but they will prevent the charger from ever being used for the intended purpose. This will also void the warranty.
The case is then reattached using the 4 screws removed in the beginning and a pen using a 1/4" mono headphone plug is attached to test it out.
If you have problems. do the following: Double check all the wire nuts. Make sure that the the dimmer switch was spliced into the hot wire (the wire running to the switch). Make sure that you've bypassed the circuit breaker by moving the wire from the copper bolt to the steel bolt.
To operate the burner push in the dimmer switch to turn it on and then adjust the dial so the pen heats up to the temperature you want. Push the dimmer switch in again to turn it off.
