Whats inside Weller WMRT Tweezers
« on: January 21, 2018, 03:05:45 am »
Hi there. I've got a weller RTW1 irons, but I have no the iron holder handle. I think to print similar handle with a 3D printer, so I will thankful if someone can send me several pictures how the handle looks inside.

I've found the male connector for the irons here: http://uk.farnell.com/binder/09-9792-30-05/socket-5way-panel/dp/1122809?st=Circular%20Connector,%20719%20Series

You mean you only have the tips and want to diy the hand piece ?

What station do you want to connect it to?

All the WX hand pieces contain a small pcb with at least a accelerometer and eeprom to store temperature setting etc. Not something that is easy to reverse engineer.

But there is diy designs for stations that use the WXMP tips. I guess you could just make a 2ch version of that to run a WXMT tip. You just need to figure out the pinout.

Yes, I have got the tips only.
I found this project on the net: http://kair.us/projects/weller/
and I have made my PCB design of the board
These tips have only a temperature sensor for cold junction compensation. So there is almost nothing.
I'm asking just for few pictures inside the tip holder.

Thanks

Wow, a cut off cable tie as strain relief?

Hand made in Germany I think. If it works as a quick hack at home it must be good enough for production of 230$ handle right? ::)

As I got a question about it, I will just clarify that the pictures I posted are of a WXMT for WX stations.
Here is a thread on a German forum with pics and schematic of the WMRT if anyone want to build a DIY one:
