46) Does Your Solder Station Have a Fuse?

I recently watched Dave’s video on the 120V Weller soldering station that he accidentally plugged into 240V Aussie mains and subsequently released the magic smoke. Bobby Dazzler! This got me to thinking… does my soldering station also have a fuse on the primary? It doesn’t appear to. Some folks on twitter suggested that there’s a fusible link or a thermal cutout buried in the windings. Well, let’s get out the left-handed hammer, surgical gloves and find out, as we tear this thing down to bare bones. Link to EEVBlog smoking soldering station: https://youtu.be/8itTKH5tj3s
