The softwood is best suited for this function. Cut the wood by the help of a hack saw blade referring to the same measurement as the one of aluminium sheet carved. Using fine sand paper, smooth the surface altogether with the edges of the wood. The thickness of the finished frame should be around 1 cm thick.

Components to fix on the frame;

  • 5k potentiometer
  • Switch
  • Power jack

Mark the area covered by the components. Use chisels to drill depressions where they’ll be placed.

 

Step 4: Circuit

From the wide collection of thermo electric cooler(TEC), select TEC-12706, to power it 5 v 1 a adapter. You may use up to 12 volts for this type of thermo-electric cooler. While varying voltage, change the value of the potentiometer with respect to the potential. Potentio-meter has a function of adjusting heat in the iron box. The Switch is meant to put on and off the device. The purpose of Power jack is meant to easy plug in. Put the order of the components in the bread board with respect to the diagram. Check to ascertain if it’s working or not.

The side of TEC that is feeling hot or heating, is the one you’ll fix to the base of the iron box.

  • Use the thermal compound to adhere the TEC with the aluminium sheet.It’s used as heat interface between heat sinks and sources of heat. You may adhere with thermal plate as well.
  • Just use the normal adhesive to adhere the hot side of the TEC to the cooler side of TEC.

Step 6: install and Solder the Components within the Iron Box
