Dude they are complete shit for control IMO. I can't work with anything but a regular iron. I still use the iron combo I bought at Radio Shack. It goes over 600 degrees, I believe up to 800 (Like why?) and works great. It was 60 bucks I think. Has a digital dial and has not crapped out in years. I used to literally break irons using them. Like they'd get so fucking hot they'd snap in half! hahahaha. Cheap shit. That fucking thing looks like a NIGHTMARE to solder with. You're going to need something you can have some precision with because depending on your case size choice, but the smallest I'd say you could swing with with this is 1790n (and it may be that you have to turn a pcb in order to do that), will not leave a lot of working room if you have to make minor adjustments when it's boxed. I've had that happen before and it's fucking annoying. Like I'm going to pull everything out to replace an LED or resolder a jack. Fuck that.
Did the shit I said about making the holes for the case make sense dude??
You can totally do this and it wouldn't' be that hard.
