Unformatted text preview: epoxy method. The two problems with that method is that for one, finding an epoxy that can withstand the high temperatures of the iron will be hard. Secondly, it will be a messy process that will forever leave the epoxy on the iron. Another method that is not favored for this project is welding because that is one of the most permanent methods of attachment. A separate thermocouple must be constructed for each soldering iron which is costly and time consuming. The method of choice is a simple attachment of the thermocouple to the base of the soldering iron holder. If placed properly, the tip of the soldering iron should come into contact with the thermocouple when it is full inserted into its holder. This allows for many soldering irons to use the same fixture and also allows for it to be left unattended. It would be simple to mount and inexpensive per soldering iron, as well as safe and effective....
